    Wow. You guys were chatty while I was gone. I have a hodgepodge in the bator now. We shall see what comes of them. OEs, green eggs, marans and God only knows what else. And a few of my own. [​IMG]

    Hi Heather,,,, what do you feed your birds to get better hatches,,, do you add something or eliminate something???

    ,,,, wish I could free range more to give them a more natural diet,,, just not possible at the moment.

    Definitely has a rewarding feeling,,, also feel it necessary for the Marans since they are so difficult to come by,,,, not readily available around this area. When you have eggs shipped, you want to get as many out of them as you can,, bad enough the hatch rate is much lower to begin with, and it's nice to get the best possible selection from what you receive, no doubt there will be the usual percentage of Roos, and it's nice to get a few pullets to choose from, they aren't always all "keepers". They're nice birds, and I would hate to lose the better ones from the bunch.

    A step by step would be cool,,, a great help for many,,, I'd love to see how you do yours, and how it may differ from how I do it.

    I do mine under a desk light to help them stay warm during the assist,,, sometimes it takes quite a bit of time to make progress.
