    2 weeks in tomorrow on my first try at using an incubator! Mamma chicken (mostly) hatched the last little fluff ball, but out of 14 she only had one successfully hatch, and that was after raking out her nest and me bringing it in and putting it in the incubator... So this time I'm trying on my own. Set 9 eggs, so far all 9 are developing perfectly [​IMG] they are from My White Rock and Easter Egger bred by my black Australorp rooster

    Find the ones marked 'fertile'... seen good and bad hatch rates... they're a crap shoot, lol...

    Read the dates and they will say fertilized and aren't usually in the same spot as regular eggs. Good luck!!!!!

    HAL is one thing, contests are added as part but an optional addition for HAL joiners... for the hatch rate contests, you have to send pics of set eggs to ron and post pics of all hatched when done... hatches need to be done and posted by Jan 3rd...
