absolutely no idea, eggs are small and thin shelled. it woulf have to be a small banty
So I told them they were banned from the bator room but they peeked. we have some pipping in the orpington basket. its half way through day 21
the first birds a ready to lay pretty soon. they are 13 weeks. maybe a month.
I have those bantam cochins Oz...a few eggs from that pair you could hatch and use as broodies? The hen hasn't started laying yet but when she does I can put aside some eggs for you to take?
They are the Mille Fleur from the first chicken meet up.
Oz ,'did you ever get around to posting your bator build drawings with B.O.M or is it still a work in progress waiting to be finalized ?
Also you can use a wet cloth wrap your hygrometer with it and then put inside of ziploc bag and if reads 95%, it's OK. I tested a cheap one from Petco and it was 5% below 95 also tried salt method, I leaved one acu-rite hygro/thermometer inside of a tupperware for 24 hours and it was reading 75%. Also you can buy a Xikar Hygro/thermo from ebay or amazon for arroud 18 to 24 dollars and it can be calibrated pretty easy.
Pardon my english isn't so good
Oz here are the pics of the Bantam Cochins...they love the little Teenagers...the Roo is not mean and this is where all my teenagers have been moved to from the big wood brooder once they feather out! They seem happy and growing out nicely...I like that the banty's are so good with them. When I moved the other set out into the big pen the Banty's seemed so upset until I moved in the next batch of youngters! So this is why I suggested some eggs for you to hatch.
