    Hi all.
    I know a science teacher in Pullman looking for fertile eggs for an incubating project. She has little to no budget for eggs, however. If you know of anyone, or can help, please let me know and I'll put you in contact with her.
    Thank you[​IMG]

    I have mixes, if she can come get them I'd give her a half dozen or so.

    I was given a goose egg and a couple of duck eggs, yrs ago. I made an omelet out of them both, put cheese and bacon and tomatoes, it was really yummy, but it was very rich. so rich that i got a tummy ache. with all the cheese and butter and bacon, i guess, just too rich for me. I would love to try goose eggs again someday. maybe when i get a goose or two??.

    for chicks, one batch (1st) humidity was at 40%, 2nd batch of chicks i did a dry bator until I put in lockdown and then humidity was 75%
    for my duck eggs i had it at 60% and lockdown at 75-80%.
    But i am a beginner, so, there it is there!! maybe i shouldn't even answer this Q.


    P.S. I am ok with driving to north Spokane for our next meet!!

    I have had good luck running 50% until lockdown then 70%. But of course im doing staggered hatches so everybody is getting a lot of ups n downs. So mine may not count...

    Is it bad that I'm planning out my keep/grow out bird hatch months in advance?

    Set date: May 28; Hatch date: June 18; 3 weeks old: July 9 (when the average temperature will be 79 degrees)
