    Borrowing an incubator tomorrow. Will be setting about 75 black sex links on Sunday or Monday. Hope these eggs are viable because the place I kept them the temps fluctuated wildly.Hoping to hatch around Dec 9th.

    Well, I have fewer amounts of eggs, but we just had our first hatch of 4 and have a few more coming up. We have 4 more that are due to hatch 11/27, two to hatch 12/3, and 10 to hatch 12/7. Kinda excited and nervous about it as we are new to incubating and hatching! Our first has been fairly successful so far (3 hatched and 1 still working on it...) so I am excited to see what the next ones have. If we are good at this we may be ordering a few eggs of different breeds to introduce to our flock!

    I'll join! I have 9 pullets and a silkie roo and so my fertile egg numbers are low but I'm trying to hatch some just for fun right now. I made an incubator out of a breadbox and have a broody Cochin sitting on 2 that are at day 14 I believe and one in the bator that is a day behind that I'm going to give her before lock down so she can raise that batch together and I have 4 eggs in the bator that I set on the 12th and I don't know how they are going yet as they are all colored eggs so I can't tell if they are veins or creases in the shell yet.

    I would love to join. I set 54 eggs on the 13. They are mostly mixes. Some pure BCM and the rest are mixes of BCM and some other breeds. Some of the eggs come from a different set of chickens and are not fertile, but I don't know how many. These eggs were refrigerated so it will be neat to see how they do (she was selling hatching eggs for $10 a dozen and eating eggs for $4 for 18 eggs, so I went with what I could afford). The Marans eggs are not that dark but they will be fun to hatch.
