    As of today, I have (between 2 incubators): 34 guinea, 99 coturnix, 16 ameraucana, 7 turkey, 7 pheasant, 6 duck, and 12 mixed eggs (from my birds). Under the broodies I have: 81 chicken, 11 duck (rouen duck broody), and at least 6 guinea (have 3 broody guineas, have only been able to check 1 of the nests). I have 2 other chicken hens that are on eggs, but I can't find the nests [​IMG] So who knows how many eggs they have! [​IMG]

    So what's cooking in your bators or under your broodies? [​IMG]

    I won't be too busy! The quail and guineas are already sold, I just need them to hatch first [​IMG] I'm very good at killing turkeys and pheasants, so Idk if they'll even hatch. Most of the babies that are in these eggs will be sold, and a few of the mamas as well. The only ones I'm keeping are the ameraucanas, turkeys, and pheasants, and maybe a few of the quail [​IMG]

    I have 9 bantam Amerucana in lock down beside 4 black pheasants for a friend. NO MORE this season. No more. No more. No more. Unless they are buff silkies [​IMG]

    I've got seven Old English Game Bantams and fourteen blue/black Orpingtons in their second week right now. Those are for other folks, I'm just hatching for them.

    Tonight I set more White Midget turkey eggs. Not sure how many as I may receive the payment for a hatching egg order today which will impact how many I set. At least twenty, maybe forty or more.

    Next Friday I'll set some mixed breed chicken eggs to hatch with the turkeys. Those will likely be mostly Cuckoo Maran/Rhode Island Red crosses with a spinkling of others.

    Hmmm....12 b/s orps and 8 lav orps from gumpsgirl, 16 split lav orp eggs from hinkjc, 8 bcm and 5 blue marans from monkeying around and 10 delawares and 8 java from someone else on BYc (forgot who). Waiting on 12 BLRW from Big Boy and 24+ buff orps from greenfamilyfarm.

    Almost done hatching for the season, just finishing putting together my flocks. Not entirely who will stay and who will go until later in the summer. [​IMG]

    Too many [​IMG] I just set some of my eggs. 9 Silver Penciled Plymouth Rocks, 6 Blue and Black Copper Marans, 5 Golden Cuckoo Marans, 16 Black Copper Marans. So my hatching date should be 6/10. These are all shipped eggs and a few have not so good air cells but most of them looked great before I set them now I don't candle until 7 days so I will know then how many might make it.

    Shelly, you are my hero! I just had 4 of 6 orpingtons hatch, have 14 more due of my own Lavender/black orps the 26th. I'm waiting for 15 Pekin eggs(never done ducks [​IMG] ) they should be here tomorrow. Then I'm supposed to be getting about 4 dozen more orps from a couple places by the end of the month. I think they'll all just fit - it is gonna be close though!
