My BR eggs arrived today from Rebel Rooster. They were wrapped amazingly well. One egg was cracked out of the 24 but that's the way it goes. These things are fragile & the postal system is tough. Excellent shipping job, Wade. I'm impressed. My homemade bater has been running at 100.2 & 55-60% steady today where as the last two days I've been fighting it. Maybe this is a sign that I will at least have a 50% hatch rate on my first go. That's all I'm praying for. Actually, I'm praying 95 but let me not push it here. Right now I'm allowing the eggs to settle & will go bator around 6pm tonight. Maybe that's too much time but I've read 3-8 hours all over the boards. I know how I feel after a long trip so that's how I'm treating them. You know I'll keep everyone updated because I'm sure I'll run into happy & snagged moments along the way. I'm praying to be a new Barred Rock chicken mommy around August 14th at the latest.
