I started with 40 eggs. 12 buff Orpington (2 broke in shipment) 14 white Orpington (from a seller here on BYC) 14 Welsummer (from Ebay-1 egg that the broody rolled out of the nest) ------- (i put 2 of my mutt fresh eggs in the incubator as a control) 2 more eggs cracked by chicken bothering broody 35 eggs 7 under bantam broody, 14 or so under Buff Orpington broody. The rest are in my Little Giant incubator. After candling last night my hopes were raised finding plenty of eggs with veins and little heart beats. I didn't think I would get any as so many have told me shipping eggs this time of year is not so great. Anyways I have never incubated, yet I have had many round of broody hens this season and had a great hatch rate with them. I really want a hatching buddy. I am willing to post pictures too!
