    I have been reading and looking and there seems to be no tread entirly about just hatching.
    There has been treads about broody hens and etc but not entirly on hatching
    So i decided to start a tread entirly about hatching like:
    what your hatching eg duck chicken (e.g sussex rode islands) peasant etc
    when your hatching
    how your hatching it:e.g broody or incubator
    how many your hatching
    If you have a problem or are not sure about something somebody might no.

    i have set up my incubator today and fixed the temp ect
    and tomorrow i will be hopefully getting 10 buff orpington eggs of a fella i no
    this will be my first hatch of 2014

    So share what you have

    So GO GO GO.................................................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    normally I dry hatch but since they are from fridges the air cells look smaller than normal so I have been adding water. 21 eggs in 3 homemade bators
