    LOL Saris and I have been on a couple of incubating threads together, I think I am in the same boat, but so far only got handfulls of ones I've incubated so far. But the Marans are doing fabulous for incubation LOL

    I feel ya there, I needed 6 pullets, and with all the issues and low hatch rates I read about for beginner hatchers, I figured if I doubled the amount of eggs I needed to hatch (assuming 50/50 on gender) then I would be good even if I got a low hatchrate. Better safe than sorry ya know, low and behold I got 25 chicks out of 27 eggs.... I did manage to sell 7, the other 18 are at my Father-in-Law's.

    Edited to say I quoted the wrong person, I meant to quote yummychocolate3 about selling chicks.

  4. Firedragon1982 funny you mentioned that I sold my new 1588 Genesis to a new Chicken Enthusiast as myself and she texted me and hatched the same exact amount! I'm bummed found out my supposedly Ameracauna is an EE. I wanted a true Ameracauna

    Hmmmm I wonder if that was me. I texted the person I bought the incubator from with my hatch results.

    Nice, locals are awesome. When I get my CL eggs from Sally Sunshine and your pairs start breeding we can swap for fresh blood.
