Good luck.I'm quite concerned about mail.
I have to mail chicks to California on Sunday.
Every news station I watched yesterday and today said it is too late to mail in election ballots because they might not get there in time to be counted.
Six days isn't enough time
What will that do to my chicks?
The reports said that right now some states have rates as low as 70% of mail arriving on time. Mostly swing states.
Good luck, keep us updated!My incubator 1 is now locked down; I removed 4 early quitters and wrote down the numbers of about 8 that looked odd. I'll have to check after hatch to see if they were duds or just developed a little slower, they looked ok candling from the top, but had a larger space at the bottom of the egg that showed clear. The other eggs looked dark and full of chick. Only 12 Celadons made it to lockdown and they are in a hatching cage to keep them separate from the mixed color eggs. Incubator 2 will be locked down either later tonight or tomorrow.
7 (of 11) quail eggs made it to lockdown, with movement in each one.
Got a brooder heat plate in the mail yesterday, so I'm looking forward to only needing lightbulbs for daytime lighting this time. (I expect to still have a few chicks peeping bloody murder at bedtime though )
Congratulations!! Hopefully the first chick is behaving now.Egg number 7 just hatched!!!! First chick is picking on the new hatch, should I be worried?
