anyone who is due to hatch march 9th can also post here ) im due to hatch then
Me too! I've got 42 ameraucana eggs due to hatch on the 9th.
I'm due to hatch on the 6th - I just candled on day 7, and all but 2 of my 16 set eggs are developing! I had set 2 Mille Fleur Frizzles, 1 polish, 1 golden comet, and 12 EEs (2 of the EES aren't developing). I wonder what do do with the two that aren't developing... I think they just weren't fertile... They're clear except for the yolk, which isn't veined or anything... should I throw them out or what? Em
I'd wait and candle them again in case they're just late..then any clears would be taken out.
I candled yesterday and 39 out of 42 were growing. I'm not sure about another 1 so I'll check it again in a few days along with the other 2 that looked clear.
Good luck with your hatch, and keep us updated!
We are hatching on March 7th. We candled on day 7, I think we are 20/20. The four blue eggs were too dark to see through, but the eggs had too weight to them.
We should get: Standard Dark Cornish, a few WLR Cornish, Blue egglayers (AmerucanaxEEhens).
I've got 13 mixed eggs in the bator due March 9. Roo was a Light Brahma that decided he would have me...so we had him instead. We were going to wait until one went broody, but that didn't have a chance to happen. So we have eggs from EE's, light brahmas, a dominique, and some Rhode Island Reds. I already killed one egg that I thought was unfertile - terrible mistake, but very educational. I candled today and think we are 100% so far. It's our first hatch.
That's great, Vivki! What kind of incubator are you using, and what are your temp and humidity holding at (usually)? I think it's interesting that so many people use so many different ways to hatch their chicks, but then so many people insist that it's got to be 'exact'.... I would love to see what everyone is using!
