    Gosh, I don't jump around to much on here. I'm usually on the rhode island red thread. Just happen to come across this when I was looking for something and thought I would say HEY. I'm in SW Pa. about 60 miles south of Pitts. Sorry for not finding this sooner.

    Sally, you've had very good success rates in the past with your setup and method,,,, thinking you may have an edge on my situation.

    I've had good success rates,,,, but, always with assistance in hatching,,, at least with the Marans,,, the Cochins do better on their own than the marans

    Good night,,, catch up with you tomorrow evening.

    there certainly are quite a few of you here that like "the" punishment, haha, I know there is alot more to it than just that though, it has got to be awesome to watch them catch and know You were the one that helped make that possible..[​IMG]..

    NIght night


    Sometime I will take the time to clean up my hatching notes thrown in that article,
    but TOMORROW I am starting a article on STEP BY STEP Assisted hatching....

    I have so many people asking for help and go over the same stuff, so I think it would benefit alot of people.... I just wish I could have someone take pictures whilst I work, because you know how fast you have to work, and I dont want to mess around and kill a chick for a picture.... hmmmmm but maybe i could save alot more chicks helping.... IDK but will let you have a look and help me edit if you can help??? But first I need to move and regroup lol!

    I do dry hatches only. Its has the best hatch rates for me. I have a humidity pump that I turn on at day 18. I also let them "cool" for two hours a day. I have had much better hatch rates, 90%+ with my own eggs. Not the same with shipped ones. A BIG factor in hatching is the hen's diet! Remember feeds like Layena are for making eggs to eat. It does not mean you will get good hatchability.
