    I sat 3 broody hens 4 11 11 used a 3 rabbit cage to keep other hens away. #1 cage BCM #2 Cuckoo marans #3 1/2 cuckoo 1/2 bcm hens eggs breed to EE rooster. (olive egger chicks coming. I hope. the half breed hen egg color is alot better than the orginal cuckoo hens.

    Could sure use a good cuckoo marans rooster from a dark chocolate egg.

    Hopefully hens do their job

    I'm loading our incubator tonight at about 11pm so I'm in. This will be our 6th time incubating eggs but the 1st time with our brand new Hovabator Genesis 1588 ( [​IMG] ) I'll be setting 18 Blue Giants (shipped), 7 EEs (shipped), & 7 Dom X (fresh). A little worried about the Blue Giants & 4 of the EEs b/c they weren't delivered when they should have been & they spent the weekend in transit [​IMG] . We also have a broody Pekin duck that I slipped 3 Pilgrim goose eggs under this past Saturday & they're due to hatch on May 7. So, we're hoping she'll stay broody & maybe we'll have some goslings, too.

    I just loaded 24 eggs at 4:00 P.M. CST today 4/11/2011. My incubator stayed at 100 degrees for 24 hours, but now does not want to get over 97. I will wait until morning, if it does not raise, I will raise it.
