Now, that sounds like a win-win situation for both of you!
The Chart shows 25% Black, 25% splash and 50% blue.
Ronott, do you have blacks?
I hatched out a bunch of them last year--The egg farmer has them in Winters. They did seem to hatch out like the chart shows.
@TheKeeper got her black pullet from my flock and also the two splash cockerels.
This year I have a splash cockerel, two splash pullets and two blue pullets. This year I will be hatching out Blue and Splash chick with no black.
I have never had a blue cockerel that made it to breeding age. I get lots of blue pullets but very few blue cockerels. The first couple of years I hatched I averaged about 75 to 80% pullets to cockerels. Now it is closer to 50/50 but most of them are splash for some reason.
Two dozen in a couple of shipments would work great for me. That sounds like such a generous offer!!!
You got it.
I generally don't like hatching shipped eggs (that's why I drove to get eggs from Ron last time) but I'm willing to give it a go.
I've learning so much in the last couple years, I feel like I could try confidently & give them the best chance to hatch.
Yes, give it a go!
If your brinsea has the two hour cool down cycle, use it for them!
It doesn't. I have the model made just before that one. I can handle doing that manually, I think.
That would've been nice for the muscovy eggs that are currently in there too.
But I do have the humidity pump that it sooooo easy.
Mine has the cool down cycle and the humidity pump. I incubate for the first 18 days in it and then set them up in one of my Genesis 1588 incubators for hatching.
The cool down cycle really helps them develop well.
