So, I think I might have a problem. I already had 42 eggs being shipped this week....and last night I ordered another 12! This is on top of my 25 chicks that I have coming next week. I keep telling myself that half will be roosters and we will be eating plenty of chicken over the next several months...but that is going to be a lot of chickens!!!!!!!!!! I am pumped about putting 54 eggs into the incubator. I don't know who is going to enjoy this more....me or my 5 yr old son and 3 yr old daughter! If I have the same kind of results I had in my test incubation (15 out of 16 hatched)...I am going to be overrun! 24 Delaware eggs + 12 Speckled Sussex eggs + 6 Dominique Eggs + 12 total (I don't know how many of each) Barnvelder, Welsummer, and Blue Ameraucana eggs + 18 Delaware Chicks + 4 Partridge Rock chicks + 3 New Hampshire Red chicks = a whole lot of chickens!!!!! My plan is to keep 25-30 with Delaware being my primary breed.
