    sad to report that the little black isbar chick, who hatched slower and later than the rest, has not made it -- just not strong enough. but the other five chicks are doing great on day 5.

    You're the 2nd person to tell me that they are slow in hatching....maybe I need to just leave them in there a day or two more. My air cells are great size at lockdown...so I know that's not the problem. I think I'll just start leaving them in a day or two longer and see if that does the trick! Thanks!

    I have two roosters to sell if anybody needs one. One is a black and one is a splash. PM me if you are interested.

    Those are some very pretty eggs! I love the shade.

    So sorry about the little black chick... [​IMG]

    I have noticed that mine hatch late, too. Anybody hatching should *definitely* leave the incubator running for additional days (I've had them go three days late in my Dickey cabinet)!

    Patience, Candi. Round #2 is on the way! [​IMG]
     
  9. YES!! Actual tracking information...what a concept, USPS! [​IMG]

    So far, 13/14 Marans have hatched, #14 is zipping. Love hatch days [​IMG]
     
  10. USPS notification: My beautiful minty Isbars went from Ramona CA to San Diego CA and are now in Providence RI. I live in NW Oregon. I give up.
