    collect them for three days or so and put them in the 'bator. Depends on how many you want and how many hens you have laying. Woo Hoo we will want to see pics of the new hatchlings [​IMG]

    Oh that is so exciting! I will be putting them in the incubator tomorow!! I am gonna go dust off the hova I have and start it up!! Wow my very own babies!
    The males are 1 Buff Silke and 1 White Silke
    in the hens I have :
    2 black conchin frizzles
    1 NN conchin frizzle
    1 Partridge silke
    1 buff silke
    I also have one white silke, but I don't think she is even laying yet. LOL! and she is soooo very small compared to the others, but eats like there is no tomorow! haha!

    So tomorow is good?
    I will have almost a dozen by the time I put them in!!!!

    I hear a lot of things around here too....... though I am still confused, but I know these ladies have been hatching their own eggs for a while so I really trust them. [​IMG][​IMG]
    Please everyone keep your fingers crossed for me....I would love to have babies from my very own flock!

    See I am not spossed to have roosters here, but the boys just started crowing and it is still small and weak and only in the morning time. I will probably have to get rid of them when they are up to their full crowing, but right now I am enjoying the fertile eggs!
