    I set 21 jersey giant eggs in my incubator on the 17th of July. July24th is day 7 and I removed 2 eggs. 1 was infertile and the other had a blood ring. On July 31 is day 14 and all 19 eggs are continuing to develop well. Now today is August 4th wich is day 18 and I will remove my eggs from th turner and look forward to their hatching over the weekend. i will keep you posted with pictures.


    Today is day number 19 and to my surprise, my first chick is fully out.

    Quote:I have a small flock of 13 Jersey Giant hens and 2 roosters that I hatched from eggs that I got from Maria Hall about 2 years ago. Now I want to increase my Jersey giant flock.
