    YAY just set my eggs in the incubator! 21 (hope I counted right lol!)

    Waiting on the temp to go back up, trying not to fiddle with it!

    I had some shipped from DipsyDoodleDoo and should be getting some interesting naked neckers! This will be my first hatch of chicken eggs.

    Anyone else set today?

    I set my first eggs today also [​IMG] I have Buff Orps, Sizzles and Easter Eggers. They will be joined by some Frizzles tomorrow (hoping they get here). My 'bator will be over full, but what the heck. Go for broke!

    Good Luck with your hatch!

    I just received two dozen eggs I completely forgot I ordered off of Ebay [​IMG] One dozen lavendar split ameraucanas and 12 lavendar Orpington eggs. I also have going from Charm1704 - Glenda - 13 Lavendar Orpington Eggs that were candled yesterday and look amazing [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] and 9 of her beautiful black copper marans eggs [​IMG] . They were set last week on the 15th. I think 3 of the marans are clear but they are so beautifully dark I will leave them just to be sure! So I'll join you too [​IMG]

    I'll be setting eggs today too. I'm setting 39 eggs. I'll have Splash Orpingtons, Lavender Orpingtoons and Penciled Wyandottes. I've been having really crappy hatches lately so I'm trying a new technique this time around. [​IMG] Good luck on your hatch everybody!

    I put a dozen eggs under a broody hen on Tuesday night. This is my first time hatching, so I am kind of nervous. I have a lot of reading to do before they are here, so I will definitely be hanging out in the incubating and hatching section for the next few weeks. Good luck everyone! Let's share pictures when they arrive! [​IMG]
