    This is our last planned hatch of Spring 2011, hope to keep this going with pictures, anyone up for a hatch along?

    Well, we have flown the coop here, we bid on several auctions here on byc with the hopes of winning a couple to see what we can grow out for next year's fun and pictures.

    We have hatched our own EEs twice so far, (13/14 and 15/17) its just an LG with FAN and Turner, its in a closet to help stabilize.,

    We also have a recommended Hovabator Genesis with turner coming in this week to help if needed, and a LG still air "hatcher".

    We won several bantam auctions which, if we can hatch any, is perfect for a friend's small farm. We also bid on some large fowl birds for the Nursery/Farm.

    Bantams- So far we won some Bantam Barred Rocks, RIR, and guess what else?...

    Large Fowl- We have Marans eggs coming from THE "ohioruss", and hope to win some RCRIR test eggs because they are pretty as all get out and will complement this year's mostly Blue/Splash/Black flock.

    These hopefully will all arrive together to be settled and set by this Thursday 12th or Friday 13th.

    I plan on taking pics of how each package arrives, pics of eggs, weighed, recorded, settled and set. just like our april 1st hatch- https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=463299

    If
    we are again lucky and any hatch we are looking at first weekend of June 3rd-4th

    I had a great time hatching with emjay and others for April 1st hatch, we had lots of support and links.

    Hope to see you here, model_A

    Well, at least Silver is going back up [​IMG]

    We are "financing" this hatch by putting up some silver bars on Ebay, we purchased them several years ago as our last hobby [​IMG]

    So, most of our eggs should ship today/tomorrow for arrival Thursday?, will update with pictures, different breeders with 4-5 packages coming from all over the USA!.

    So, auctions are over, all monies are paid, and if the Old Pony Express helps us out, we plan to set ~60 chicken eggs this Thursday and Friday.

    The chicks, (if any hatch), are going to friends across Gator Country.


    Anyone else planning a Friday Setting?

    should they hatch, and just to remind myself.
    Grandma Rita is getting the bantam barred rocks
    My Mom is getting the Bantam RIR
    BigJim, our friend in micanopy, is getting ohioruss marans eggs, he was looking for dark eggs, lol, he got 'em. our EEs are also going his way, too
    the RCRIR, they are 110% ours! and the orloffs should fit right in with them.
