So after all my lengthy posts and whatnot it is finally closing in on the beginning of day 1 of incubation! I just got back from a trip to the beach and from getting my Serama hatching eggs! I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am!! I will be putting the eggs in the incubator tomorrow after I drop my son off at school. I paid for 12 but the woman always gives 18 and she even gave me 4 extra so I have 22 eggs! Thankfully the incubator I bought is a 22 egg one, lol. This whole past week and weekend has been one thing after another of things happening that work out just right, it's so weird (like how we ended up being in the right place at the right time to spot a 5 week old kitten in a field next to a grocery store just minutes before we left for the beach for the weekend). I am going to document as much as I can because I love learning everything about most stuff and if, for some reason, this fails I will have detailed info that may help for next time. So here is the first two pictures. I believe all the writing is supposed to be the color hen the egg came from. Not sure, though, and the woman hasn't gotten back to me on it. The first picture is just to roughly show size. I have refrained from touching the eggs directly. I used the paper towel or a sterile glove to handle them. The egg my fingers are around is the 2nd smallest. The one with the W on itnis the smallest. I really hope that one hatches (well I'd love for all to hatch), but I know smaller eggs don't tend to do well.
