My hen Nebula went broody and I decided to let her try to hatch some eggs. I sent out a call for eggs quick and ended up being sent 18. (Way more than I can keep if they hatch.) Not knowing if my hen will be a good brooder or mommy I was to nervous to put them all under her so I split them up. Half went under her and half into the 'bator. Yeah, I am a belt and suspender kind of gal. It took longer than I hoped for the 'bator to get a consistent temp so I set the eggs in it a day after the broody got her eggs. Nebula is on day 5 and the 'bator eggs are day 4. The eggs that were sent me are a mixed batch of bantam eggs. Possibly Sebright, Black Rosecomb, Cochin Bantams, Japanese Bantams, Polish,various colored Araucana's and Modern Game. We will see what I end up with.
