I've been looking for a long time. We purchased chickens about two years ago we have an Americauna rooster, 3 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Americuanas and two Road Island Reds. We had anotherr rooster for a while, and apparently, two of my eggs that I incubated were his.

I purchased two small incubators with auto turners about a month ago. We incubated 9 eggs in each. 13 eggs hatched. Six were not fertilized. Unfortunately, the day they started hatching, my cat knocked the incubator over. And try as I might, I lost three babies that might have made it otherwise. Hard lesson learned.

My Aussiedog Bonnie thinks they are her babies.

Sounds as if all the animals in your household are with the program with the exception of The Cat. Figures, huh?
