I set my eggs on Tuesday, all cooking away nicely
Can't wait for the first candling
Is the the thread to win the co-op.
No, it's in the remember our fallen stories thread but you have to be a member of this HAL.
oops, i thought the rules said you have to be hatching anytime this YEAR. i didn't realize it said in MAY. I might be hatching sometime this year from my own silkie but don't know if in May. do i have to drop out of this thread? I will if you say so,
chickenstock is a bunch of chicken addicts gathering in 1 location. There are held all over the place. This year the one in NY just happens to be at my house.
My hen is setting on Silkie eggs they where put under her three and four days ago does it count
So long as there are eggs in a Bator or under a broody anytime in may
I can't remember if I said I was joining, but I am! I have lots in the incubator set to hatch May 9th, and I a couple of days ago I added a bunch of my silkie eggs, along withthe first 2 eggs laid by my December hatchery chicks (I call them my teenagers). They were a nice soft green.
With the 10 silkie eggs I set on 4/28, I've had to pull 6 clears. So, I'm having a fertility problem since my silkies went broody. It's funny, I added a rooster - you'd think fertility would increase, with two roosters. From that hatch, I also pulled both cracked eggs I had set, and 2 other beige eggs (not sure which ones they were). I candled Shellee's eggs, I found 6 blood rings, but I haven't actually pulled anything from that incubator just yet.
Good news, today we got 1 green, 2 light pink, and 1 light beige from the teenagers. There are 5 EE , 1 Dominique, 1 Buff Orpington, 1 NH Red, and 1 Black Australorp hens with 1 EE roo. I am not sure who is laying yet. Hopefully they will all start soon. I just want to hatch a few chicks from my EE roo, then I'm getting rid of him. He is WAY too loud. He's super sweet though. I'll set everything they lay as soon as I have some free space in the incubator.
I'm sure I'll be setting more eggs, all through the month of May!
Happy Hatching everyone!
