    My eggs are due to hatch December 18th. i have 10 eggs in the bator, 7 eggs are from standard hens and 3 others are from my bantams.. i have no idea what i will be getting because i just got a new rooster that is a OEG bantam/EE and then i also have my BIG white wyandotte rooster and they both mate constantly so i cant wait!
    i am looking for some hatching buddies so if you are due the 18th or around that time post away! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think I may get a chick or two Dec 16th or 17th, maybe even the 18th??

    Not sure yet...

    My silkie hen has been sitting on six eggs for a couple of days and seems determined to go the distance...

    Some eggs are from Wed, some from yesterday and one from today so [​IMG]

    Might get lucky!

    I've never in my life seen a live chick and have NO idea what to expect or what to do.

    I just bought a new incubator, one that turns the eggs and everything and i use to have a really old incubator that you had to do everything and it is killing me not to touch those eggs! [​IMG] [​IMG]
