Thanks, this gives me hope!
Your welcome! I put 85% but ment to put 85 degrees. Sorry
@Song girl 11,
Since its only been 2 days I would leave the eggs in the incubator. Place another thermometer inside that you trust and get your temp up to 99.5-100 degrees with humidity of 30-35% for the 1st 18 days then for lockdown crank the humidity up to 65% and drop your temp to 98.5-99.5 degrees for hatch. You should be OK.
Will do. Thank you!
one of the best from this spring, however the silver seems to have a slight tint to it. Is this ok? No gold leakage from autosomal red!
bottom one is same as top, a few other cockerels for good measure. Reduced numbers of cockerel by 45 so there's about 15 left to sift through, for sure five culls I can see, rest I want to watch a bit yet
WOW! What handsome fellows!
I like the Cockerel in the first and last photos. He has really good type, tail and lightly feathered legs. I would breed him just for those traits alone. His comb is decent - well lifted off the back of his head but a little unbalanced (points are not all nice & even) but not a huge negative. His eyes are on the lighter side of reddish orange but again not a huge negative. I think I see what you mean by a slight tint on his right shoulder but it’s very faint. Overall his silver is very nice. I would prefer to see a little more lacing / color on his breast. Overall, well done!
The Silver Blue (2nd photo) has a nice strong head, good comb, nice reddish orange eyes. I can’t tell anything about his type or tail because he’s laying down. The Silver (3rd photo) seems to be a little younger than the first Silver and Silver Blue. Correct? His eye color is gorgeous - nice deep reddish orange. I like his Silver too but he needs more of it - he’ll get there as he matures. Hard to tell because he’s hunched up but he looks to have a nice long back and short well angled tail. My only real issue with him is his legs are sparsely feathered - needs a little more but can be fixed if bred to a hen with nicely feathered legs/feet. His legs appear to be bordering on whitish...could just be the lighting in the photo. You have some nice birds!
she is a beauty ,early feathering type love her correct hatch down. a bonus she is friendly
Bravo my friend .your girls are doing you proud .
