    I have a mixture of eggs from dark brown, light brown, beige, and olive color. I am excited to have these since my last two batches have been complete failures. These are surprise eggs from the chicken man who lives an hour away. (yes I drove the distance to get eggs from someone I trust and have dealt with before)

    Is anyone else setting today that want to join. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I just set 6 of my Serama eggs at 3:30pm and it is the first time I am using an incubator so I am hoping for the best! I am using a Brinsea Mini advance Ex. I got all the settings locked in and now it's up to the eggs!

    My first time being a hatching buddy also but I would guess we all support each other and swap info since they will all be due at the same time.

    I just set today at about 9pm.. Using still air (Little Giant) anyone have experience with still air?

    Set 16 eggs total:I have 3 EE's, 3 EE\\BO crosses, Unless one of my banty roos were able to do the job on one of my BO or my EE hen (?) and 10 mixed banty eggs that will be crosses between mille fleur duccle, silver duckwing OEG, red pyle, silver sebright (maybe golden sebright if she has been laying) just maybe I happened to grab some pure duccle and sebright eggs for the incubator. This is my first hatch so lets see.

    Anyone know if a banty and heavy breed can cross?

    I will post pics after first fertility check if I have any viable. (and if I can get a good pic)

    Also, upon cooking a BO egg today, I ran across a double yolk... Do these produce twins ever? Or do they not survive?

    Thanks, and good luck every one on your hatch!
