    Anyone else setting eggs for an August hatch?

    I just put 24 black australorp and Rhode Island Red X black australorp cross eggs in. This will be my first hatch in almost 3 years.

    I had a hen who just started setting off in the brush somwhere. Figuring from the day she disappeared, she will hatch next month. If she survives.

    Do you have predators?
    Can you move her inside?

    Unfortunately i had a large temperature spike and my forced air incubator was at 106+ degrees when I found it. I candled that night and separated the maybes to one side. Now with 11 days left i rechecked and removed eggs. I have 4 chicks alive and well in their little shells unfortunately the heat killed off the other 20.

    I almost gave up that day but am really glad I waited to recheck them. They are due to hatch August 2nd.

    I just put 60 eggs in my incubator yesterday. They are barnyard mix from my own eggs. I hate the waiting game. Can't wait to see the little things

    Hi all, i am a silkie lover and have tried now 3 times to hatch with no success yet, twice under a hen and now under a incubator. Had 24 eggs in this incubator, discovered yesterday at day 21 that only 3 were feetile. Checked one of the three today, it was under developed for day 22, still had a full yolk sack. Im leaving the other two but am sure they will be weak hatches. Im wanting to try again in an incubator, please give me tips as i am using a yellow ce incubator that is unable to be seen through . Only way to see is to open it. I am thinking to put the next eggs in and just not touch
