I am very excited about this hatch! I set frizzle eggs on Saturday, May 15th... so hatch day is this Friday, June 4th... just a few days away! I got 16 Bantam Cochin Frizzles from byc member Fay at Frizzled Feathers and 12 Bantam Polish Frizzles from byc member TurtleFeathers. Both of these sellers have such gorgeous birds... I couldn't resist! Both sellers sent extra eggs and both sets of eggs were packaged perfectly, arrived quickly and not one broken egg. I candled at day 10 and then again at day 17, I waited until day 17 to toss any eggs (just in case I missed anything). On day 17, I tossed 4 of the 12 Polish eggs (3 were clear and 1 had a blood ring) and 9 of the 16 Cochin eggs (8 were clear and 1 had a blood ring). It was sad to toss so many eggs... but, I realize that is just how it goes sometimes with shipped eggs. So yesterday, I went into lockdown with 8 Polish and 7 Cochins. My incubator is a Genesis 1588 and this is my 4th hatch. My temperature and humidity have been great the entire time. I am on pins and needles... I have my fingers and toes crossed for a nice healthy hatch... come on Frizzle Friday!
