Hey everyone! It's that time again! today is day 17 for my chicken eggs! This is my first chicken egg hatch of 2009!!!! As of right now i have 16 chicken eggs all with growing chicks.. i candle on day 15 and all 16 had chicks moving The 16 chicken eggs i have in my bator are.... Buff Orpington x Wyandotte x BBN = Bantam Nacked Neck ( Blue/Black/Splash ) NNF = ( Blue/Black/Splash ) Naked Neck < Frizzles ................................ My last chicken eggs hatch was 4 silkie eggs and the Humidity was WAY high i think it was 100% and it wouldn't go down for anything! no matter what i did it wouldn't go down so out of the 4 eggs 2 hatched So this time i bought a giant Sponge and cut it into chunks i wet one Sponge and put it into the hatcher bator last night and the Humidity was great it stayed between 65 and 70% but this morning when i woke up it was 33% because the Sponge had dried out so now i have to Figure out a way to keep the Sponge wet without opening the bator top and this Sponge doesn't take water in if you lay the water on top of it you have to squeeze the sponge for the water to go in it so any ideas on that would help ALOT .............. I don't put the eggs in the hatcher until tomorrow so as of now i and pretty much thinking on how to keep the Sponge wet Temp has been steady at 100 Once again there will be TONS of pics! So are ya with me!?!?!?!?!
