    Hatching some Delawares and BBS Orps for someone on BYC and they are hatching right now. Three of the twelve eggs aren't pipped yet. Day 21 started late this afternoon.

    It brings back memories (from just a week and a half ago [​IMG] ).

    Jimmy wants to know if you think the Orp that is shown in your pic is black, and at what age do you get a good idea of what color they will be?

    Quote:It's a bit early to tell on that one since it's not completely fluffed out, but at this point, it does appear black to me. The very dark blues will fool you for quite awhile, though.

    Brad, I may be putting over 30 in the bator in a couple days. LOTS more Delaware babies!

    This bunch is being much slower than they usually are. Guess I'll be missing more sleep tonight. And I have a batch who are on Day 19 now, so I get to do it all over again in a day or so.
