I figured I'd post my eggy experiances so far In my bator I've got 11 RIR eggs, 1 mallard egg, 12 muscovy eggs, 4 cayuga eggs, and 1 buttonquail egg and under a broody hen, her own 9 eggs. Muscovy eggs set in the bator on the 2nd: still nothing in most of them. mallard egg set on the 3rd: day 7 real good viens all ove rthe egg, day 10 dark shell except for airsack, can see the viens still, a dark mass that follows the rotation of the egg, sign of a healthy baby?? Cayuga eggs set yesterday, so nothing yet, button egg set today RIR eggs set the 7th, still nothing in the ones I've checked UNDER OUR BROODY, so as not to tick her off too much, only candled one, she started brooding the 1st, viens in the egg, same dark shell except air sack, like the mallard egg, and a dark mass that follows the egg rotation!!!, again, sign of a healthy baby?? next candling will be a mass candling of all the eggs in the bator and will be the 17th, I hope for a good result!!!
