    Glad to heat they arrived in one peice. My eggs are delayed in the mail. :( I hope they make it soon, I better go ahead and set the ones I already have.



    That's funny! My husband has a "bantams only" rule during the winter. :lau

    Everyone is getting/setting their eggs! I want mine to come, too! They are supposed to ship sometimes this week. I'll just keep waiting... and waiting... [​IMG]

    In the meantime, I'll enjoy everyone's pictures!

    You probably already said, but what breed are the eggs Turken?

    I set 16 eggs around 2 o'clock this afternoon. Two of my hens layed at 1:30 or it would have been just 14. Nice timing girls[​IMG]
    I will get some pics of them tomorrow[​IMG]

    11 days into our incubation, Easter eggers fertility test #1 we went early with low expectations. Set 18 still have 11 in developing. More than our expectations. Lots of pullet eggs.
    Hoping one of our older gals will want to set. Maybe after our Cold snap ends next week.

    I set 72 golden quail eggs on Saturday. It's my first go at incubating and my first trial of my incubator.

    Well, candled this morning. Batch 1, I'm down to 3 eggs all with healthy, moving babies. Batch 2, down to 4 eggs with good veins. But in batch 2, I don't really like the way the veins are spreading through the eggs....
    Super excited about the first batch, due the 28th, they're all khaki campbell eggs and I'm expecting daddy to be my Cayuga. The babies are all dark too!!!
