    I just placed 6 eggs under a broody girl today! [​IMG]

    I put out mixed silkie eggs, so I'm hoping for some buff, black and white this time! Our last hatch didn't go so well we only got 1 out of 5 eggs. An egg eater got them and kills 2 that were close to hatching. We haven't had anymore egg eating issues... no more messing with them at all, so we're trying again.

    I figured here's a good place to post if you set your eggs today, incubator or otherwise.

    I hope everyone gets a chance to post some pictures.... candling, your incubator, your broody hen and of course YOUR HATCH DAY!!!! Whooohoooo

    Oh gee! I had to put her back on her clutch of eggs 2 times the first day!!!

    She kept seeing a fresh egg get laid and she'd go run and jump on it with a quickness.

    She has stayed on her pretty little WELL MARKED pile since then though. Peck (that's her name) doesn't seem to be bother by my presence when I check on her. BUT she got my husband good when he was checking on the eggs. We've noticed a habit of my husband getting pecked anytime he goes near any of the hens or rooster lately. They overwhelming prefer their mommy [​IMG]

    LOL...I just get that song stuck in my head!

    She kicked out a second egg today. Both had WAY large pores in them! She's so smart. The other 4 are happy and warm though [​IMG] No eat eaters so far.
