Hey, more birds to select from helps ensure a stronger breeding program, right? Sounds like a good enough reason to set them... that is, if you have enough coop space.I'm swearing too. I set 28 eggs on the night of the 10th. I've collected two dozen more eggs since then but I keep telling myself, I don't have anywhere to go with more birds. Perhaps I could sell some but I also think we're due for molt and a dearth of eggs so we should just eat them.
I went to swap my trays around today to move their spaces in the incubator and gave everything a good whiff. Smells and looks all good!
I’m nervous I cracked more eggs, but, I’m sure we will all find out soon enough.
I think I’ll candle for development tomorrow night.
Did candling tonight. The results from our jumbo girls were disappointing but not surprising: 20 clears, 2 blood rings, 10 live or shell too dark to check. Much more positive news on the purchased eggs: only 2 clears and 22 good looking embryos alive and wriggling. So I’m down to 32 eggs in the brinsea now.
