I started out with a test run with my homemade incubator,I set 7 Buckeye eggs.I drove an hour and picked them up from Bigredfeather. This will also give me a different strain to add to my flock. On January the 2nd,I had 6 out of 7 eggs hatch.I was very happy with the hatch. Here is a better picture of them after they were all dried off. Here they are at two weeks old. From what I can tell we have three roos and three hens,unless someone else can sex them from pic. Here is a picture of some 27 week old Buckeyes,I had to bribe them to get a few of them out of their warm coop. I could not shut the incubator down,so I set 21 BLRW's.This will be my first attempt at hatching Shipped eggs. I candled the eggs at seven days and had to throw five out already,and two more are iffy.I do not know if this is the norm for shipped eggs or not,but I'm hoping the rest of the eggs hatch. I forgot,I had to throw a few of are Buckeye eggs in on the top shelf,a stagger hatch. They just started laying,and I want to see if the Roo's are doing their job. Thanks for looking.
