    El Nino is terrible for us, jet stream dips low and funnels moisture right out of the gulf. We got 13 inches of rain in October, 5 so far in November. I spent all day yesterday re-mulching 7 pens, and this morning it was all floating and washing to the low side...

    One of my three rumpless aracaunas has started to lay... the other two get a daily interrogation in german... German sounds harsh no matter what is said.

    That's so funny you say that. I live very close to the BMW plant, and my neighbor is German. I told him he needed to come and scare them into laying. It worked with the Polish...

    No not yet 15 out of 23 . Started cleaning the incubators with the turners yesterday . good thing ! the massive amount of air movement really drops the humidity . 27% in the hatcher this morning . If the incubators work that well I should have some really good hatches. I' so looking forward to that . should improve the BCMs and Ravyns Sulmataler's I think are harder to hatch than the BCMs. let me stick the pictures on for Sally .[​IMG]

    [​IMG]these eggs aren't going to hatch to much fluid from using the F.I. Styrofoam incubators. also I think the GQFs turn the eggs more often and get them closer to horizontal . I may have to use shipped eggs for my first Incubation . my chickens and Ravyns have all but stopped laying .
