    I'll join you but have to find some eggs. I know I can get dominiques and cuckoo Marans. Might try Ameracaunas. My incubator only holds 7 but that size group seems good for me for now. In addition my goofy guineas have about 30 eggs piled in the coop. I left them there to see if anybody would sit on them. I'm not sure what's happening there but I took out a random egg and candled it and there was some development. I guess I'll just leave them for awhile and see what happens.

    I will be joining you in a few days... On Friday I'll be setting a cocktail of different bantams; 6 lemon mileflure sablepoot/booted bantams, 6 mixed colour Polish bantams, 6 Wynadottes (blue laced and buff laced) and 6 Lavender Pekins... So 24 mixture of bantams should hatch sometime around 10th September and will be my last hatch of the year as it will be starting to get a bit cold here to put them outside.

    I was shipped 12 SQ Sicilian Buttercup eggs last Saturday. They arrived in really rough shape many are porous, three shattered, lots of broken and/or rolling air cells some of the air cells have since reattached some mostly reattached. Most of the air cells have at least gone back together into one bubble. They were set Sunday and candled today before I went into lockdown on two black oegb eggs I have. Some appear to have very early development but I don't expect much at this point, or at all from these poor abused eggs. The seller is also shipping me replacement eggs free of charge will let everyone know how they arrive. Should be receiving 10 Buttercups and two partridge rocks tomorrow or the next day(Friday) Saturday at the latest.

    This is my second hatch but my first staggered hatch. I'm hoping that because the eggs are far apart in days and bc the buttercups are porous it wont negatively affect them. There are only two oegb eggs I'm hoping they hatch quickly.

    My first hatch had some problems with sticky chick and membranes drying so the chicks had trouble zipping and we lost two I saved one and as they were shipped eggs we also lost 3 other chicks that never pipped. All in the wrong position but absorbed egg yolks.

    As such I do plan on helping if necessary. However I'm hoping I have a better idea and hatch now. We'll see in a few days as the oegb were alive and well at last candle.

    Temps have been pretty steady at 99.5-100 did spike briefly Sunday to 101 for maybe a minute. Humidity has been running between 32-42% but is currently raised for lockdown on the oegb. It was 65% when last I checked.
