    Thanks everyone! They are in there now, I am not the best at incubating though soooo.....

    I had 2 more easter egger, another blue wheaton ameraucana and a cochin this morning, so I added those as well. [​IMG] Shhhh!

    I have a partidge cochin hen in with the splash cochin rooster and I know she is laying, hoping to see if I can get some blue partridge started. If I get some pullets out of this, I will cross them back to my partridge cochin rooster. At least I think that is how to get started!
  9. Sounds like a plan to me, JD.
    Red, I don't know anyone that has bantam Ameraucana, my Am's are LF.

    The are out of the turner!!!! I candled a week ago and only had to toss a couple. This is the stage where I normally lose them.

    I have 3 Acurite thermometers and all 3 read different temps and different humidity levels. The temps were within 3 degrees of each other, but the humidity varied by 25 percent! I bought another one and figured out which one it matched to and hope I am okay! CRAZY!
