Just started "Day 1" with some more eggs in the incubator yesterday for a hatch date of February 12th. They were put in on Jan. 22nd late in the evening, so day 1 is the 23rd. They are a "grab bag" of mostly some Bantam Blue Salmon Faverolles with some Bantam Cochins & Bantam Dominique/Faverolles crosses. How fun! Winter is not over yet, with weather & less light hours in the day to create a few xtra challenges. Of course it was great to hear someone chime in once in a while to brag about their sunny days in another part of the country. It was a lot of fun sharing with all of you on a Christmas hatch thread & then on the 'JANUARY HATCH-A-LONG come join in" thread. I heard some great questions & answers, saw many adorable chickies pictures, shared ideas & learned some things. It was (& still is, as Jan. is not over yet) a comfort to see others experiencing the same as I. So, let's keep the "hatch party" going & "come join in!
