I just put the eggs in this morning. 12 Silkie eggs, due to hatch on the 22nd to the 24th.
Glad to hear everyone's eggs are doing good. Also glad to hear more being set.
Here hoping all hatch.
Hello everyone. I would like to join the fun. Just got my eggs today (shipped) and I'm letting them sit for 12-24 hrs before I put them in the incubator. Some are too dark to see much but most have a detached air sac. I will be incubating and hatching in a modified carton after doing much research. I got a big variety of eggs from a shipper who had good eBay reviews so I hope to have an okay hatch rate but we will see. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's success.
I've these 10 eggs under a broody since new years eve so I think that means I'm on day 2. I was struggling to get fertile eggs off anyone so this lot are just of an old farmer up the road. He runs some roosters with a mixed flock and let me pick what I wanted from his eggs for sale basket. He doesn't know what fertility will be like this time of year so fingers crossed. I picked a nice range of colours anyway.
My rotten broody swapped nests and left her eggs.
Oh no :-( I've separated mine so she only has one nest option.
Awe, to bad. I've got a silkie going broody, and I think I'll wait a day or two and if she stays broody, I'll take my eggs out of the bator and give 'em to her.
I truly didn't think she'd leave them.
They were not cold when I found them and her on a different nest.
Maybe I should move her to her own section. Luckily my coop has sliding doors.
I will try that tomorrow.
Looking at the difference of day (almost 6 eggs) and the clears, I should be able to tell the difference quite clearly tonight from the winners and clears.
So I'll do that, and then recheck on Monday night.
I THINK I only have 5 or 6 fertile of 22! Geesh.
Nope ...only 4 developing out of 22!
I just put them in the bator today! I have been doing more reading and I might not wait 7 days to start turning. What do you all think?
