    25 good eggs at day 13!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My husband and I stood in front of the incubator and marvelled at the little babies we could see swimming around in there. [​IMG]

    Some of the eggs are almost completely filled with chick, while other eggs still have a lot of space to grow. I assume it's simply the difference in the breeds? They're going to ba a barnyard mix, a BO roo over BR, RIR, SLW, EE and black australorpe.

    So, next week this time, we'll be waiting on PIPS!!

    Good luck mangaled! Did you put them all in at the same time or did you stagger them?

    I put them all in at the same time. We just took 2 days egg collections and put them all in. We started with 29.

    Both the eggs from my RIR hen never developed. She's alpha female in our little flock, and the more I think about it, the more I think that our roo doesn't even mess with her. I've never seen him breed her, so who knows. I was hoping for a couple of her babies, she has such personality.

    My first ever batch was a bust.

    I am on Day 10 of my second hatch. I candled today and there was one definite blood ring, from a very porous egg.

    There's one that has seemingly stopped moving, and another (Ameraucana Bantam) which is too dark to see through, though it looks infertile.

    But 12/15 ain't bad!
    Keep your fingers crossed!!!
