    Its rapidly approaching that time of year again! Hatch time...I do believe I need a little practice before the full season hits, so I have plugged in the Brinsea and started collecting eggs. Anyone want to join in?

    I am collecting my maran eggs to see if my rooster is doing his job. If I am able to find some olive eggers or Swedish flower hens to ship this week then I will add those too...otherwise maybe a few barnyard mixes.

    no...I think when we look for hatching threads we look for hatch a longs...I have many staggered hatches expected beginning sat. the 4th

    I just set eggs this morning, this is my second time hatching via incubator.

    Just put in the eggs right when the clock struck midnight here. It's my first hatch, so I'm very excited!

    I'm putting some in the bator and some under a broody silkie on Thursday night or Friday morning. Bator is warmed up and stable, can't wait for the eggs!

    We are starting our first hatch today with our homemade still air incubator. We are putting 4-5 of our barnyard mixes. Can't wait to see if we are successful!
