    Hi,
    I have some eggs that are due on 6/3.
    There's 8 Mottled Houdans, 14 Black Copper Marans, 14 BLR wyandottes and 2 olive eggers.
    I've culled 3 of the MHs that didn't develop but they are shipped eggs.

    Hi there, I just set:

    5 Blue Andalusian
    10 Silver Sussex
    10 Buttercup

    Very excited to join the hatching group! [​IMG] Mine are shipped eBay eggs also. My hatch rate with shipped eggs seems to hover around 20%.

    Looking forward to the journey with you all.

    Edited to add: I'm using a Little Giant forced air with a turner for incubating, and a Little Giant still air (no turner) for hatching.

    Thanks! [​IMG] Can't wait to see your babies ... I've never heard of the white la bresse! I need to google that one!

    Anxious to see BawGock's BLRWs too ... I've been through three batches of BLRW shipped eggs - not a one hatched - I tried to assist one had passed its date, but it died anyway [​IMG]
