Can I join in!?
I put 12 guinea eggs in the incubator may 1st.
Adorable little fuzzlets! The Green magnolia is really pretty with that spot on it's head, too bad it's a cockerel. I agree with you, it looks like BCM was used to breed the OE (in fact it almost looks like a straight BCM). With the straight comb you probably will get brown eggs, but you never know. What color egg did it hatch out of?
9 eggs locked down, but don't think 2 are alive. They don't stink so stuck em in anyhow. Hurry up babies!!!
yeah, the head spot indicates male from what they have on their website
Green Magnolias - Auto-sexing green egg layers! Females will be darker at hatch, with no dot on their head. Males will be slightly lighter with big dots on the top of their heads.
that's what I'm thinking too! leaning towards BCM dominant and brown eggs (if it's a female). it DID hatch out of an olive egg though. it is the front left egg in the picture below.
I don't fully understand the genetics and how an olive egg could hatch a single comb/non green egg gene chick
Tuesday is due day, so do I put them on lockdown Friday or Saturday? I'm a bit lost. Also with lockdown I remove the turner and leave the eggs alone? Just watch humidity?
No! You may not! (kidding!)
Yes. You, MrLeeroy, I think Chaos18 and I all have hatches due Tuesday. Lock down is Saturday.
Oops! See above.
Set day = day 0
24hrs later = day 1
start lockdown on day 18...
if 5/10/16 = day 21
then 5/7/15 (Saturday) = day 18
for lockdown, you want to increase the humidity to about 60%.
remove the turner and lay the eggs on their side.
I like to candle the eggs and mark the air cells with a pencil. then, I lay the lowest part of the aircell (the dip) facing up. this is most likely where the chick will first pip through!
Well maybe it's just walnut or a walnut pea comb I am not sure but it is different than all my others lol
