I am so sorry about the job loss!! I hope this door closing opens up a door with bigger and better.
Deleted...wrong thread. Sorry
Checked my eggs tonight saw movement, movement,movement!
Did a candle tonight because I noticed an odor coming from the bator.
Found the culprit, also found another obvious dud and another with a crack.
I also believe 2 more might be quitters but I'll give them a few more days to be sure.
The 2 with the floating air cells are still going strong and the embryos I could see have started wiggling. I'm just hoping something hatches.
Sally hello! I will have a mixed bunch hatch. EE roosters over EE, Light Brahma, Blue Cochin and Speckled Sussex hens. Currently looking for hatching eggs for Light or Dark Brahmas, LF Blue Cochin and Blue Jersey Giant. I have room yet but have older girls who need replacing in my laying bunch.
Glad you found the duds! Good luck on the rest, fingers crossed!!
Happy Saturday Everyone!!! Good morning!!
I'm in, I'm in, and I'm so Eggscited!!!! I am really looking forward to this month. My beautiful blue silkie Princess, FINALLY, gave me a couple of eggs to hatch! She is older, and some have very thin shells, but one definitely has a nice strong baby inside!!! I NEED that chick to hatch!!!
And...I have exchanged my beautiful black Ameraucana rooster, who was not doing his job, with an even more beautiful black Ameraucana rooster (he's been daddy to some amazing potential National show winners,) and I can't wait for my first babies from him!!!
I have three batches going at the moment that are a combo of silkies, and rocks, and I will be adding Ameraucana's to the incubators ASAP.
Here is what I have set so far:
18 due to hatch on May 3rd: 7 rocks, 8 blue silkies, 3 of her white silkies
More due to hatch on May 10th, including one from Princess my gorgeous prize winning older silkie!
Infertiles due May 16th. These are a test batch to confirm that my 8 year old Easter Egger rooster is truly infertile and ready to be put out to pasture ( mom likely none of these will hatch, and I will pitch after candling on the 5th.
More due to hatch on May 17 and 18th.
Thanks so much for feeding my addiction! I am just thrilled to be part of another Hatch-a-long!!!!! My very first one in April was a blast!!!!!!!
Welcome! Sounds like you have a full of hatching!
Welcome! I have my first guinea ever in the incubator now, they are on day 16. All the contests currently open are for all BYC members, so certainly we can join them. And you are certainly welcome to chat on the thread.
Oh no. I am sorry. I hope you are able to find another job soon.
Glad you found it.
Welcome! You are going to have a busy May with chicks too!
