    Hot digiddy darn!!!!!

    I've been collecting until I had a dozen. Then I put them in the "Super Bator" with the other 34 eggs that are on Day 10. I will move the newer ones to my small bator when the older ones are ready to hatch.

    Here's a list of what's in the bator

    Day 10
    12 Black Jersey Giants
    12 Rhode Island Reds
    10 Buff O's

    New guys
    4 Easter Eggers
    8 Rhode Island WHITES


    I really need help!!!!!

    Can I ask where you got your Rhode Island WHITES? I got some off of eBay, paid over $40 and I was told by everyone on here they were White Rocks.

    I ended up with them from a neighbor moving out of town. White rocks are different from Rhode lsland Whites. It has a lot to do with the comb.

    White rocks have a single comb(one big comb) RIW have a rose comb like the RIR. Put one along side the other and you can tell the difference.

    Quote:I found out about the comb after I got the eggs. When the weather gets warmer up here would you be interested in selling some RIW and RIR eggs?

    Well I was excited they were laying again. They all decided to take the winter off. Right when my hatched addiction kicked in full bore.

    They were older hens when I got them, so I don't know about the ages.
    I have some Dominique pullets that I hatched in Jan. so I will keep an eye on them and see how long it takes them.
