    Eggs from Gabbard Farms! 47/48 made it!

    Mixed batch for hatch from ebay- 30 won, 33 came!

    Wellies from L&S Chickens (thanks Shellie) 3 of my new Polish to see what comes out and one of my new bantam cochins!

    What do you think? 3 incubators enough???

    They look great .... 3 incubators? One Sportsman, or Brinsea Ova 100 would do just fine [​IMG]

    I would love a Dickey. For now, 3 styrofoams. I have pretty decent luck with them [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I had 18 of Dispsy's frizzles in already, and then I added all these so, 42 x 3= 126??
    Hatch will be on the March 6th! 6 weeks to feather out and they will be free ranging fools! [​IMG]

    I just recently purchased eggs from Gabbard farms as well. They are hatching as I write this. I got 8 SLW, 8 Ameraucana, and 8 Barred Rock...What did you order in your mix?

    I told my hubby I wasn't shoe shopping any more, instead I am shopping for eggs of different colors [​IMG]

    So, the bottom one is easy, 3 Polish, 1 cochin frizzle bantam (freeloaders!) and 6 Wellies... Top boxes, New Hampshire Reds (my new project!), Ameraucanas and Wellies (the other work in progress!)
    Now the Middle one. I am so excited about this. It was a 30 purebred mix! 30 eggs mixed!! Woop. She labled them all and sent a sheet with codes on it!! Okay, so there are Buff Silkies, White Silkies, bantam blue cochins, Cuckoo Marans, Buff Orpingtons, What she calls olive eggers (her own cross- how cool is that?) and some that she calls "Dark Eggers" Which are assorted Maran Penedesenca(?) and Barnies..

    I will be so thrilled when they hatch [​IMG]
    Almost like a box of chocolates, except, well, no sugary delight...
