    In the incubators-

    May 5 hatch are Silverudd Blue/Isbar, Isabelle leghorn and a few Swedish Flower hens
    May 9 hatch are all blue and black copper marans
    May 15 hatch are Silverudd Blue/Isbar, Isabelle Leghorn and Swedish Flower Hens

    I've got the brinsea's overloaded and have lost count of how many of what are set.

    Under the broodies; roosters are australorp and silverudd blue and a sneaky Swedish Flower Hen

    The hens are australorp, 5 kinds of marans, AM, EE. Maybe I will get some purebred Australorp. Otherwise mutts.

    I am a 4th grade teacher. This is my 2nd year incubating in my classroom. I set 22 eggs yesterday. We hope for a May 17th -18th hatch date. I used eggs from my personal flock of barred rocks.

    We will be candling on May 2nd!

    My class is very excited. Count us in for our hatch along.

    We attempted to participate in the Easter Hatch a long but I was not given clearance by an administrator for that month due to our testing calendar. The kids were patient and were so excited to finally set eggs.

    I'm down an egg. One of the marans eggs had a Crack, eggtopsy showed no growth anyway so either way it was a dud.
    29 still cooking though.
