    Hello!! My eggs are due to hatch on Christmas Day!! The boys are so excited!! I didn't plan on hatching again until Spring, but my 10 yr old overheard me telling DH that there were EE eggs for sale on here and begged me to buy them!! How could I say no! I had unplugged my bator already and had to set it back up!!LOL!! I can't wait for Christmas!! This makes Christmas even more exciting!!

    We had been setting eggs up until the bator was full, a few a day through the 26th. It ought to be interesting.

    Quote:What breeds are you hatching?? I have EE's in the bator, also a friend gave me a couple silver sebright eggs, and a couple he didn't know. I am hoping these are Buff Brahma, but I will have to wait and see!!! Then for fun since I already had the bator up and running, I added an egg from my Silver Spangled Hamburg (boy) and my Ancona (girl), I can't wait to see what hatched from that!![​IMG]

    Day 21 for mine is at 1:45am on 12/28....close.

    Was really hoping for Christmas babies....but it just didn't work out. Then I thought about having chicks hatch on New Years Day...don't think that's gonna work, either. Oh Well... [​IMG]

    Let us know how it goes and good luck. Are you as nervous as I am ?[​IMG]

    I need to figure out the picture thing which I have tried twice with no luck, I guess Im just a little dense as everyone else seems to do it. [​IMG]

    The "Christmas Rush" will be Golden Cuckoo Marans.

    In hind sight, we probably should have held them for a batch, we set them every day for a while and to be honest, it will be an effort to get them rotated through the hatcher, and keep things cleaned up fairly well.
