    re picsI'm at the end of day 20 and one of the spitzhaubens has a pip! Can't see it on the bator cam because of the angle but it's there! [​IMG]

    Quote:29 eggs but 2 are muscovy eggs which will go into another incubator the next time I open this one. And 9 are dark brown or green so that I could only see the air cell and not much else when I candled. A couple of others are questionable. [​IMG]

    Quote:To the best of my knowledge there is no hatchery in the state. The Magic City Hatchery in Minot closed 4 or 5 years ago. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] The web cam looks like another one has made it out!

    Quote:I got them off ebay. The same seller has some listed now at: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200201735620&ssPageName=MERC_VIC_RCRX_Pr2_PcY_BIN_IT&refitem=200195132482&itemcount=2&refwidgetloc=closed_view_item&usedrule1=CrossSell_LogicX&refwidgettype=cross_promot_widget&_trksid=p284.m183&_trkparms=algo%3DCRX%26its%3DS%252BI%26itu%3DUCI%252BSI%26otn%3D2

    The
    seller is: autumnrangerhorses

    I bought an auction listing for 24+ eggs which included spitzhaubens, silkies, and black sumatras from purebred breding pens and welsumers, red phoenix, auracanas, and americanas which were penned together. He also offered to throw in some muscovy eggs if I wanted them. I got 40 eggs! Very well packed, individually bubble wrapped. Only one cracked out of the bunch. I've got 29 out of the 39 I put in the bator still inbut I think 2 or 3 of those are bad.
