My first attempt at using an incubator 13 icelandic eggs just went in.
Yay!! Good luck!
The Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/icelandicchickens/ acts as an unofficial club, education center and group for Icelandic chicken owners in North America and Iceland. There is a Breeders List of vetted breeders, a lot of informational documents under Files, and has more than 3,500 members. Here are photos from my flock in Western Montana. As you can see, the landrace (not a breed with a standard of perfection) is very diverse. They are also incredibly various as to personality, intelligence and curiosity. They lay a lot of white to tinted medium to large eggs, are very good at free range thriftiness and are very interesting.
Day 7 and it looks like I have 1-clear, 11 definite developing and 1 that may be a quitter but I'm going to give it another day or so.
The 11 good ones look like this with the little eye moving around
The one in question has a small red circle in the middle I left it in for now, any thoughts?
I haven't incubated in a while, and I could be wrong, but that does look like a quitter to me.
Day 11 and I have 11 active developing chicks, fingers crossed all goes well for the hatch!
Candled day 15. 11/11 seem to be growing just fine, I'm getting excited for my first hatch, really hoping for a great success rate.
That means less than a week to go!! Good luck!
How are the eggs doing? They're on lockdown now, right?
