  5. I'm setting mine at 1pm on Friday. Just got off the phone with my local farmer, and he's packing me a mixed dozen of Black minorcas, Sumatras
    Australorps, Partridge cochins, and Blue bantam cochins. So I'm all excited, and guess what? He only asks $4 for a hatching dozen. CRAZY!!!!

    Count me in !!!!
    I just got 6 WCPolish and 6 GLPolish in the mail and I am letting them rest. But at 6:30 p.m. they are going in the bator. Yewwhoooo!!!

    I am in with you. I usually put them in the egg tray and cook them but this time I'm thinking about laying them on their sides. Any suggestions?
     
  7. if I could mail you one of my 3 broody hens, i would.

    I started 12 eggs on 6-6-10. Is that close enough to be included? Mine are SLW's and a hybrid (mutt) between SLW rooster and GLW hens. We'll see what happens. Today is day 3 and I'll be candling eggs tonight.

    I put in 14 in the bator on the 5th, it's my second batch. My first set I got 9 hatched out of 24 or so. My one day old chicks started dropping like flies. It's was hart breaking. I got on here and read that bedding can some times kill a chick, I pulled all the bedding and had 4 make it. So my first hatch was not so good. Both set's were from my 4 road island red hens and 1 red star hen. Covered by a road island red rooster and a OB roster. Out my first 4, 3 look just like rir chicks and the 4th is a OB cross he/she is a hoss cat.
