I just placed 6 eggs under a broody girl today!


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

Best of luck this time!

Delilah is still doing good. She's at a stage right now that she's so ugly, she's cute. OH my. It's good though!

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

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
No eat eaters so far.
