3 of the Silver Double Laced Barnevelders have hatched so far! They are going to hatch different days/times because the hen had way to many eggs, so when I moved her I candled and kept the ones that where close to the same progression. I also have a couple blue eggs in the incubator from my Crested Cream Legbars to hatch in a few days as well. I might already have a buyer for all of them!
HOW. Do you wait patiently for chicks to hatch once you get to day 19? I found this really cool chart showing chick development by day, and once I candled on day 10, I was able to just let time go by just fine. It’s day 19 now and I’ll all sorts of impatient to see if these little things will hatch out!
First batch of Polkies and Silkies hatched yesterday! 12 out of 13 ( one was DIS). The two remaining are due to hatch tomorrow.
The majority came out paint, four of the Polkies are black. Photo of some of them eating breakfast this morning. For size reference the paper plate is a desert sized plate.
