    Tomorrow I'm setting my final batch of the year and first hatch of next year. [​IMG] I'm excited that I can hatch again and again when I want to. This batch will be 9 full RIR and 3 RIR/BA. I'm hoping to get one roo out of the RIR/BA eggs for my dad's "Breeding Project". So, who else is setting up to hatch next month?

    I am! I have a broody with a random assortment of a dozen eggs (not one of which is hersÂ…haha) due for January 8th. Not exactly on time with yours, but looking forward to the little chicks of January!

    Mine are due just a few days after your's. I collected my last egg this morning (it was a RIR like I thought it would be) and now they're in the bator! I'm excited. I missed hatching.

    Ive got one batch a week in and am setting another either tomorrow or Saturday. Silkies, sizzles, and Swedish flower hens. I'm incubating in my new incubator and hatching in the old one.

    I wish I had another bator so I could do that.

    Day 10 for my sizzles and silkies. One wiggled a leg when I peeked in. Amazing how much they grow in just a few days. Set 16 more Swedish flower eggs yesterday. Waiting on one more shipment and my incubator will be full.

    Here's what's in there:
    2 of 4 sizzles
    4 of 4 silkies
    6 of 8 Swedish
    And the 16 new Swedish, 12 more coming

    I got impatient and candled last night and so far all but 2 eggs are developing nicely. Now I just have to sit on my hands. [​IMG]

    I just candled the 16 Swedish that I set last week. 13 have veins. 2 might be growing, and only one looks clear. Finally got my last shipment in today-set 13 more eggs.
