    Well here goes my first attempt of hatching this year. Its a still air incubator so my hatch rate varies. Anyhows I just put 27 eggs in the ol bator.
    1 brown/red OEGB
    1 self bule OEGB
    8 OEGB mixed colors
    9 Spangled OEGB
    1 Barred Rock
    7 Japanese black tails/ Brown leghorn Mixes [​IMG]

    Ive had the spangles since last year and I never have gotten a fertile egg either the rooster with them is too young or not fertile. so lets hope he's did his thang this year [​IMG]

    The OEGB Brown red and self blue..just got them and thats their first eggs so who knows

    Barred rock started layin and quit....but I hatced eggs from them last year

    the OEGB mixes I got from the swap

    and the Japanese and Brown leghorns... Im just curious what kinda mess that'll be. I have 4 pairs of japs in with a Brown leghorn bantam rooster (ROMEO) they are last summers babies. so they could be the Romeo's or the other 3 jap roosters that are in with them..this is their first eggs so lets [​IMG]

    Ya'll wish me luck... fill free to post your batches [​IMG]

    none of these eggs were my own i got them from 2 diffrent people i got a bunch of jersey giants from this one girl but 6 of them were not fertile [​IMG] but i think i have atleast 1 left maybe 2 but we will see i mean if i can get atleast 40 of these 44 to hatch i would be so happy, just as long as you have 2 that are fertile would be good enough for me lol i just wouldnt want a chick growing up by itself
