Hi Everyone, I thought it might be interesting to see how well seramas hatch, especially after being shipped. I know that they're notorious for poor hatching rates, and I remember spending days poring over serama eggs and how to hatch them successfully. I was obsessed! I thought it would be cool to document our hatching experiences. This is highly variable and completely unreliable (lol), depending on fertility rates, how far they were shipped, how quickly they were shipped, weather, shipping & handling, forced-air/still-air... I could go on forever. This is mostly for fun, because our results would be so different, but might help out people in similar situations. If no one replies, I'll just be using this to keep track of my chicken incubating experiences #Eggs: 14 smooth & frizzle mix Price: $27 (a steal, IMO) Shipped: Yes, Priority Mail (2-days) Season/Weather: Summer (Early June) Distance: North Carolina to Missouri (halfway across the US) Arrival condition: 6/14 with detached air cells, otherwise in pristine condition Incubator/Broody: Brinsea Mini Advance (forced-air) Development: 7/14 developed Hatch day: Day 19 Results: 4/14 hatched, all smooth feathered Hatch Rate: 4/14 = 28% (I saw on another post that someone had gotten 27% with their shipped eggs) Sex Ratio: 2 male, 2 female (50:50) Notes: I put detached air cell eggs upright into incubator in egg cartons; hand turned all eggs until no detached air cell eggs remained, as none of them developed Notes could be anything, such as blackouts, misting eggs with water, cooling times (I didn't do that) Might be forgetting some details here.. anything else important to add?
