Locking down today ....anyone locking too?Join us for the fun...(fun? stress? however it hits you)
What's locking down?
Lock down basically means you don't open the incubator and you raise the humidity, and it usually starts about 3 days before the eggs are due to hatch.
Good luck with your hatch Roxannemc
I candled mine a last time today a while ago think they all died back about day 10 right around last candle!
Thats the size they all are and eggs all weighs about 1.8oz. if that means anything.but i am keeping them in anyway in case.Only 3 more days until who knows...
Oh, I hope they're all right. But you're right it won't hurt to leave them in, just in case. Keeping my fingers crossed for you
I just locked down today (day 17) because of a surprise
Awesome, what a cutie! What breed is he/she?
Either pure silkie, or silkie cochin mix. The guy that gave me the eggs (found them in nests he didn't know his hens made) said he has a silkie rooster, and then he has silkie hens and cochin hens.
BTW these are breeds I have never owned before, the eggs are tiny, and this is the smallest chick i've ever seen. I was terrified to move it to the brooder box a few minutes ago. I mean just shaking terrified that i was going to hurt it.
Cochin eggs are smaller, from my understanding so maybe that's it.
