    We set 21 Bielefelder eggs from eBay and 28 Bielefelder cross eggs on December 2nd. Is anyone joining me in some hatching activity this month?

    Maybe depends on when my 60 quail eggs show up. Could be next week but maybe week after that. It seems like I’m always in the middle.

    Sure! I currently have 12 eggs set due to hatch 15 Dec. Eggs are from my flock of two Rhode Island Red hens and two Plymouth Rock hens. Rooster is a Rhode Island Red. The purpose of my December hatch is to document egg shape to sex of chick. Good luck on your hatch.

    I'm in !! I have 3 eggs under my blue Silkie, Pong. They are due CHRISTMAS EVE !!!
    I also have 4 silkie eggs in the incubator. They are due Dec. 27 !! I'm hoping that at least one egg is from my polish. And that they are all fertile :fl

    I have a partridge roo, white, blue, black, and buff, (if laying yet), silkies, a buff polish hen, (if laying yet), and black bantam, (if laying). I have 4 laying and only know 2, trying to figure who else. Can't wait to see what I get. :jumpy:jumpy

    I have 10 eggs in the incubator. I'm at day 18! This is my first try and so far it's going good! The eggs have started moving around a little. I'm so excited!
