First one out, lots of pipping going on

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Dipsy Doodle Doo, Apr 29, 2007.

  1. This is from the group I set back on 4/5 and plugged in the turner but didn't plug in the bator til 4/9.
    I had plugged in an EMPTY bator by mistake (too many incubators and thermometers with probes here).
    First one out is a Campine [​IMG]

    Woohoo! Congrats!![​IMG] I am on day 24, and another has pipped! I cant believe they are taking soooo long! So far, 3 on the way! [​IMG]
  3. Wow, Deb, Day 24? They are slow (and you are patient). Did you have low temps or something?
    This group is on Day 20.
    2nd one out is an egg from my brothers game birds, something he called a pumpkin roundhead (??).
    There is an Ameraucana x Naked Neck cross (hoping for dark skin and a naked neck) almost out, too [​IMG]

  4. ...and now, on the morning of Day 21 ---
    5 silver Campines
    2 Games
    1 mottled Cochin
    4 Naked Neck x Ameraucana crosses (and all 4 are feather necks, phooey)

    Hey Dipsy, are those Naked Necks usually featherless on the neck from hatch? I have never seen one a grown one much lessa chikc but I was just curious. I have seen pictures and I think they are different and wouldn't mind having a few. It's kinda like our Chinese Crested hairless dog. Either you like em or you don't.
  7. Hi chknman79! Yes, they hatch naked necked.
    Here are some naked neck chicks from an earlier hatch --- not the same cross as the ones I'm hatching now.


    ncflowerpower (I knew a Robin that was ncfp), Hope your hatch goes well. Good luck!
