    Yeah! I just got my 10 Lavender Orpington eggs in the mail today - they are settling right now & I hope to put them with 24 Silkie eggs due here tomorrow. I'll put both in the bator on Friday, Sept 23rd for October 14th hatch date! So exciting! I love having the babies around. Of course we won't be keeping all those chicks - just one or two from each batch - but it will be fun to hatch out some fuzzy butts. [​IMG]

    Hello! I'll be incubating along with you. I received 12 Black Copper Marans eggs and 6 Swedish Flower Hen eggs in the mail today that I will put in the incubator tonight along with 6 Barred Rock eggs from our own chickens. I'm not sure who is more excited - me or the kids! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    As of 8:20pm EST, the eggs are in the incubator. Aren't they pretty? [​IMG] Praying for all the hatching mercies I can get!

    The Silkies are here! I have 27 eggs going in the bator.

    I'm thinking they are: Blue/Black/Split, Buff, Porcelain, Blue/Black/Splash, Black Lavender Split, White, Partridge and Splash - these were the colors I could figure out from the codes. There's also one mystery egg - so can't wait to see what that one will be - hoping it hatches!

    My 12 serama eggs are now in the incubator!
    Here's hoping for a decent hatch, six are silkied
    Seramas and I am eager to have a couple of those!

    I am also keeping lots of notes, so if it turns out
    good or bad I'll know what to repeat or avoid next
    time.
