    My eggs haven't hatched and we are on day 22. I thinnk they got too hot one day my hubby came home and said the bator was on 110 degrees. Now, I can't try on some of my own eggs because my rooster didn't get into the coop and froze to death.[​IMG] He was kind of onery, but wanted to try some of his eggs. I found him lastnight. The weather here is down in the single digits right now, and is freezing.

    So Dipsy, (Lisa) I want to try some more eggs, if I can.
     
  2. I'm so sorry, Jada! I think 110 is a little too hot [​IMG]

    What flavor you want to try? I can't remember right off what you were hatching.

    Sorry about your roo. It must be reallly cold there now.

    Hey Lisa,
    I would like some silkies and cochins however you spell it. If you have them, that is.

    The rooster was really onery to my daughter and would chase her.

    Jada, if you had your rooster with your hens, they should lay fertile eggs for a while after being seperated from the roo. if you want another rooster like you had, hatch some of your hens eggs, and maybe you will get a one.

    How long are they fertile for after they are seperated? My eggs are selling to the local people like hot cakes right now. I might steal a couple of them out though.

  7. [​IMG] That's true, I didn't think of that! Your girls' eggs should be fertile for a while.
    I'll email you about the Silkie and Cochin eggs.
    Can you handle chicks hatching over Christmas [​IMG]

    I candled my eggs last night and didn't see any blood spots, how would I know otherwise?

    Lisa, I don't know what we will be doing over Christmas yet as it's too far off. I'd better wait cause next week I have to go down to my mom's and help her she's having surgery.

    Let's wait til after the 1st of the year.

    I checked my eggs lastnight and all but 3-4 weren't fertilized, and the others had formed.

    It's so stinking cold right now, so we will wait. It's 6 degrees F this morning, and has been that cold here since Monday night.

    Ok Lisa I am ready for the eggs if you have them. We decided to be home over Christmas. Thanks a bunch! I tried sending you a pm but your box is full.
     
  10. Hi Jada!
    I'll email right now.
    My PM is full / out-of-comission, but my email works fine [​IMG]
