It's that time again! Every year, many members come together to set eggs to hatch on the exact same day - Halloween. If you are new to hatching, this is a great way to get a lot of help, tips, and advice. Join in the fun for the scariest BYC Hatch-Along of the year!

Set Chicken eggs on Sunday, October 10th at Noon (whatever time zone you are in). Other poultry breed setting dates are listed in the spoiler below:

To join the hatch-along, simply post in this thread that you wish to enter and we will add you! Set dates for each type of domestic fowl are listed above in the spoiler above.

This thread is our main chat thread for the hatch-along where you can find anything from new friends, awesome incubation help, to the most detailed educational discussions possible, and how could we forget the laughter and fun!

This post of the hatch-along will be updated as we move along with all the important information you will need, but if you find yourself with a question, just post it on the thread, everyone is helpful!

If you end up not setting any eggs, please let us know! It makes it easier for our record keeping and we don't have to try to track you down!
