    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. [​IMG]

    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?
