    So my newest eggs just arrived (thanks Camelot Farms) and look fantastic, didnt loose a one in shipping!

    Will be setting these tomorrow and hoping for a productive 21 days ahead.

    Awesome!

    Watch closely because often the smaller breeds will hatch on day 19, not 21.

    Wouldnt want you to be surprised and off guard... [​IMG]

    LoL good to know.

    I am thinking of placing them in the egg carton for the hatch after taking the turner out of the bator. Any thoughts on this with these tiny eggs?

    hi
    um
    i jut put my mil fleur mix eggs in the bator, and was wondering when you have to stop turning the eggs if they hatch earlier.
    as well as that bout 2 weeks ago i had my first hatch come early on day 19, the breed isnt small, the hens are blck rocks and the rooster is a giant compared to them. the temp was 101 1/2
    any way, good luck whith youre hatch:)

    Thanks Luke, I will be pulling mine from the turner on day 18 still, if I see a pip before then I will act on it then. I am also not loading every rack since I am setting 6 eggs only. This will give room to move things around if needed this time.

    Ok these eggs went into lockdown last week (Friday) and I now have 1 pip. Darn chickies need to get with the program and hatch already.
