    I messed up these last 4 eggs. The temp and humidity was all over the place. I don't know if I will ever do a staggered hatch again...

    Anyway, today I moved them to the hatching bator. Not expecting anything this time... Anyone else hatching this week??

    These are my hens offspring- they could be whole BO or BO x Buff Cochin....

    Someone? Anyone wanna be on my hatching team this week?!!?

  7. Hi! This weeks' hatch is Jersey Giants, Ameraucana, Silkies, Frizzles and I think there is a Serama in there. There's something squirrelly going on, tho. I had to go look to see what was in there this week and there are 3 chicks already out --- 2 Am's and a JG.

    I'm due on the evening of the 29th. The hatch is probably late based on candling. I'm holding off on upping the humidity until I candle tonight.

    There have been a lot of quitters and some trouble with the incubator, but still a chance for some of them to hatch ( I started with 48).
