    Is it too late to join in? I just got my incubator's temps correct and set eggs on the 30th. Not a bunch of eggs just a couple from my hens. I wanted silkies but no one will email or call me back about buying eggs or birds. No silkies for me.

    Welcome! Seems like the worlds egg-dry when you're ready to hatch, huh? [​IMG]

    That's great. Welcome aboard. Happy hatching.


    All fowl are very welcome. Welcome to the January hatch.



    There have been some say that they list power, they just cover them and keep them as warm as possible. Said they gotten done fairly good hatches, the hatch was just delayed a bit, day or two.

    Fingers crossed for a good hatch.



    Never too late. They'll still hatch in January. Wrk one to the January hatching thread.



    Thanks for helping welcoming the newcomers. I try to keep up with it. But had to work today and just now getting in BYC.

    Day 8 candling: 33/36 are looking great! Very, very wiggly. Two ended up not being fertile (a lot less than I thought I'd end up with! Go roosters!) and one was an early quitter.

    I'm on day 5 of a batch of black copper marans... So egg-cited to see the process in an incubator!

    Day 6 for setting hen, and she tossed out two of the eggs. I'm guessing she knew something I didn't.

    Day 4 for incubator, only opening to add more water.
