    And I'm not off to a good start. Hope I learn some good stuff quick because I've two incubatirs full of rather expensive rare breed eggs. Already lost all 14 gold laced brahma eggs. Other breeds still trying. Any ole how, I am in North Central Texas. And Im chicken crazy. Lol

    Pray for our eggs! It appears they are going to need it.

    What I'm trying ti hatch.

    Crested n non creasted cream legbars
    Swedish flower hens
    Gold Laced brahmas (failed)
    Rhodebars
    Blue laced red wyandottes
    Welsummers

    Still awaiting delivery of
    Silver sussex
    Light sussex
    Blue isbars
    Blue breda fowl

    Im going just say it. Wow some of these had better hatch or I will really be sad.

    Greetings from Kansas and [​IMG]! Great to have you in our community! I'm sorry you are having incubating issues - you aren't alone!! Have you posted in the incubating/batching thread below? Some wise souls patrol that thread and can probably help you out! Good luck to you!

    Maybe you could start by trying to hatch a few inexpensive eggs first. Or are you able t o purchase some chicks locally.
