    on of my pearl hens was gone. But I would see her reappear on occasion. Today I found her nest, candled and the eggs are ready to pip:oops: YES!!! I took the eggs and the bator is running one last time. [​IMG] i swore it was off for the year. But what do you do with 24 eggs that are thriving and the temps are falling into the 50's with rain expected most all week. YOU INCUBATE........... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:LOL, yes, my incubators are ALL OFF... as of this morning, I gave up on the last 2 eggs. I rinsed the hatcher out and coiled up the cords, but it's still sitting over there cuz I have not sterilized it and boxed it up (with TAPE, lol) yet like I have everything else already (just being lazy, hmmhmm). But truthfully, I'm really only done cuz my Hens have stopped laying [​IMG] I felt the incubating twinge bigtime as soon as I picked the last little fluffed keet of my last hatch up out of the hatcher [​IMG] Almost called my friend and asked if she had any Guinea eggs sittin' in the egg basket on her counter that I could have [​IMG] (I KNOW her Hens are still laying, sigh). I'm still getting 1-2 eggs a day from a couple of my Hens, and I have to physically force myself to put them in the fridge, ugh!

    I'd have incubated those eggs too if I had found them, still cracks me up tho cuz you said you were done, lol.
    It's ok, I slipped once too [​IMG]

    I'm looking fwd to your keet pics!
