Good looking birds! I'm a nerd about those things, too lol. I set 13 eggs on Nov 10 and marked and weighed them all. I've weighed them, candled and marked the air pockets twice since then and they're all looking good. I'll post some photos and descriptions of what I'm hatching soon. I've been reading all about chicken genetics lately and decided to experiment with a few new crosses involving my Cream Legbar & Golden Appenzeller Spitzhauben roosters and Cream Legbar, Olive Egger and Dominique hens. Hatch date: December 1.OK! Just set a dozen eggs from my three egg layers. Like to set on Fridays if I can so that I have the weekend to fuss with new babies! I have room for two more in the incubator so I will add these tomorrow. Marked each one, weighed it and checked the air cells. I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to these things! So nice to see these gorgeous air cells. I’m so used to getting shipped eggs where the air cells are jiggling and have to be coddled and have to be hatched upright and have to turned by hand. So refreshing to just throw the eggs in the incubator and let the auto turner do its job and pretty much forget about them until it’s time to candle them again!
