    My chicks are hatching today. So far I have 1 golden lakenvelder hatched, and 3 peps. 3 blue Andalusian peps.
    And waiting on the welsummers. I have 1 dozen of each.
    My broody is on 1 dozen 4 eggs of each breed.
    And she wont tell me a thing about whats going on under her.

    Update this is my hatch so far
    Golden Lakenvelder - all 8 have hatched for me, 4 under hen ?
    Blue Andalusian- 4 hatched 2 peps, 2 to go, 1 chick died it had its intestines on the out side. 4 under hen?
    Welsummers-2 hatched 1 pep 5 to go, 4 under hen?

    I'm going to go check my hen now.
    Hen update she has one zipping and 4 pips maybe 5 .

    Boy the Lakenvelders are go getter's.

    Update 5-19-08 all have hatched but 3 in the bator 2 andalusian 1 welsummer.
    under the hen all have hatched this was a great hatch.

    congratulations. I bet you are really excited. Good luck

    I am hatching today too and have lots and lots of questions. I think it would be easier for the hen to do this. Maybe next year tho..
  3. we are hatching too with jersey giants and blue and cuckoo marans. May the hatching gods shine on all of us this weekend.

    Well I couldn't stand it any longer I had to get the dead one out and help one hatch.
    It was a welsummer and the egg was golf ball shaped. It couldn't zip and it was dried out I thing I did the right thing.
