    I'll hatch with you. cluckcluckluke. I set 9 buff orpintons Jan 12. I will have 10 maybe 11 BOs to set jan 19. This is our first attempt at hatching. We collected all these from our three pullets (only two are laying). We are using a hovabator 1588 to incubate and a friend old lg still air to hatch. These are a show strain we received shortly after Christmas. Our first hatch should be Feb 2. We're in mid Nebraska.

    YAY [​IMG]!
    I can't wait to see your baby BO's. So you are going to have chicks hatching either side of mine.
    Good to have you on board, keep us updated [​IMG].
    I unfortunately won't have any candling pictures until day 15 as some of my eggs have detached air sacks.

    [​IMG]Welcome aboard. Do you have any hatching yourself?

    I'm on Day 18, my broody decided to go broody the 2nd time on New Year's Eve, so the next few days I'll be watching her closely. I *should* have some marans, & olive eggers hatching. I have 2 Roos, one is a Marans x New Hampshire red (mom was sold to me as a Rhode Island Red chick) & one is a blue splash Marans. I'm not sure how he came out clean legged, I picked him up at the farm & the parents had feathered legs. His sisters only have one leg that's feathered... Not sure what the deal is. So these will be an interesting look, hopefully the marans got me all & not the NHRx roo.... We shall see :D
    Not sure exactly how many eggs, I just put a bunch under her & she ate one yesterday... Something must have been wrong with it.

    Beautiful chicks btw, I love leghorns. I had one & she was like a dog. She died this past summer though :( I would like to get a few for my flock sometime in the future

    Sounds good Gen. Keep us updated on those hatching chicks. Your going to have so many great colours in that bunch.
    Don't disturb mother hen though as she needs to keep a constant temp over the next few days.

    Sorry about your Leghorn.
    My Leghorn rooster is the nicest lap rooster. He is so friendly and very tolerant of the dog and cats we have.
    I can't wait to see how his offspring turn out.
