It looks just right given they are not all piled up in one bunch.
Oh! Well that's awesome! My husband said I was cheating when I tried to calculate rate without counting the clear egg! Ha!
And so it begins! Going to be a fun day or two hopefully!
I just set my 3rd hatch of the year. 90 of my Generation 2 eggs, 1 pure Black Copper Maran egg, and 5 heritage Turkey eggs (albeit I don't know which breed they are yet). See if you can spot them in the pictures below.
This hatch is going to be iffy, at best. Some of the eggs I have set were laid during the coldest spell of weather in 140 years, and may have been frozen. Egg production has also gone way down in the last 10 days...where I used to get 12-13 eggs a day I have been getting 5 or less...so to get the setting above I've had to use eggs that are up to 16 days old. Hatch date is 3/16.
I have a pip!!!!
One of the eggs also has a tiny hairline crack. Does that count as a pip or is it an almost-pip?
What do you use to mark your eggs? I use pencil, but it doesn't show up very well. I'm just worried about what's safe to use.
Pip pip hooray!!!
I use the black freezer wax pencils. Get em at the grocery store.
I used sharpie with this batch with no ill effects so far. 46 eggs set and only one quitter. I'm currently in lock down.
