    I'm in!!

    I am setting a dozen mixed OE, EE, and CE and then 4 Quail d'Anvers eggs that my daughter's hen has been laying (we've checked fertility and Rocky is definitely doing his job!).

    I put ours in the incubator about an hour ago. I put 33 eggs in. Hoping for the best.

    Picked up my eggs today (locally so they didn't go through rough shipping) and couldn't wait so they went in. [​IMG]

    4 Bantam d'Anvers
    16 mix of EE, OE, and CE.

    This is going to be the longest 21 days EVER.

    Ooo ooo ooo pick me! I put 10 maran (blue/black/splash) eggs in and 30 silkie eggs in Feb 20th. Due March 12th. This is my second hatch. I had an LG that I set 12 (shipped) blue splash bearded silkies and 7 olive Eggers in a month and a half ago. Ended up having 5 of each hatch. The Temps were all over the place the whole time. I set it up for this batch but the Temps were so wonky I returned it and ordered a hovabator 1588. It seems to be doing great and the kids love the huge window. How is it 21 days seems so short but gets over so fast lol. I have 2 goats due tomorrow and Wednesday so lots of babies around here [​IMG]
