    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Congratulations! It's always so egg-citing getting that first egg. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is loads of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Hi my name is Nathalia. I am new here. My husband and I have a modern game chicken and we are hatching more modern games and Seramas.

    I have a question and hope someone can help me.
    We ordered some hatching eggs on Ebay and we have the eggs in the incubator. How is the correct way to count the 21 days? You count starting the days the eggs were laid or when you put the eggs in the incubator?

    When you put the eggs in the incubator. Eggs hatch normally 19-21 days. but leave them in there a few extra days. 99 1/2 degrees.
    Good Luck and post a Hello here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/44/new-member-introductions Welcome to Back Yard Chickens Nathalia .[​IMG]
