Things are pretty muddy right now but I will set the game cam back up so I can post pics of what I got....i have mostly brown egg layers....barred rocks....orp's....silkies..........or as chad calls some of them,,,,unidentifiable mixes ...
Unidentifiable mixes, hee hee! Wing, any chance you could manage till the Maryland swap? If not, have you considered posting them on the PA livestock Facebook Page? Just some thoughts. Sally!! Awesome post!
The PA hatchery that sells Freedom Rangers also sells white muscovies. I'm not sure if they also sell hatching eggs.
The temps and humidity are staying pretty steady! I put in 3 RIRs and 3 BSLs...well assuming that it's my RIR rooster fertilizing the eggs and not the silkie. I put in another RIR this morning and waiting for my Barred Rock to lay this morning and gonna throw hers in too. That'll be it then. I wanna keep at least one BSL girl if I get one. Probably sell or give away the RIRs
SALLY! Those $14 thermostats, if you're upgrading a sportsman from wafer to that, do you need the relay?
I fired up the Sportsman today. I am setting my eggs collected the last couple of days and I have bantam BBS/Lav Ameraucanas coming. I am also trying to get my hands on UK bantam Orps. My hatching season officially begins today.
As for what I had in the Hova-bator. One bantam black Orp hatched and I was unsure it'd make it because not all of it's insides were absorbed. It still has some danglies hanging and drying but it's up and peeping. I had a Mille Fleur bantam Cochin pip, zip and hatch overnight. So, it looks like I will be getting 2 chicks out of nearly 35 eggs set. Only 9 made it past day 7 (I think many were partially frozen). After the failure that was this round, I hope the Sportsman does better.
