    Well everyone it's that time again! [​IMG]

    Tomorrow i take Lisa frizzle eggs and one green NN egg off the turner

    Then tuesday i take Tori silkie eggs off the turner and Charlie's buff silkie eggs come off the turner

    Then i take the bobwhite eggs off the turner on thursday then i take the pheasant eggs off the turner friday and then i take the button and coturnix quail eggs off the turner saturday then i take the new set of silkie eggs from Tori off the turner on september 3rd!

    wooo i'm tired just writing that..lol

    ok after thinking carefully about this hatch i want each chick to have it's chance at hatching so i'm going to be doing the egg carton method for all the chicken eggs and pheasant and coturnix quail eggs that way as the chicks are hatching they wont be rolling the other eggs all over the place...

    This will be my first time trying the egg carton method so i'm a little nervous about it..lol

    As i always do i will be updating every second during the hatching and there will be TONS! of pics

    ( all the hatches will be posted on this thread )

    This is a big hatch so i need all my BYC buddies to go through it with me [​IMG]

    Wish me luck

    Not a lot!!!! I have one silkie (all the others didn't survive shipping) and 5 of my mom's mixed babies. She is trying a new rooster and he is young, a lot of the eggs weren't fertile. [​IMG] But, these seem to be going strong. [​IMG]

    Quote:They have destroyed a LOT of eggs for me lately. Right now I have a second bator I don't even count. Not a single egg seems to be developing and they are from a seller I trust to have good, fertile, eggs. [​IMG] I have heard them drop (HARD) my box of eggs on my porch before ringing the bell on more than one occasion. Wish I had a local source for what I want. [​IMG]

    Wow BB! I am really excited for you too! I can't wait to see more of Lisa's frizzles and the NN!

    and I think I want some of Tori's eggs this spring so I can't wait to see how those look.

    This is like watching someone open birthday presents! Not quite as fun as your own - but still exciting.

    Good luck!
