I just set 6 barred plymoth rock eggs under a broody hen
They should hatch on the 13-8
Best of luck! Let us know how it goes.
I'm a wee bit ahead of you, mine are also under a broody but will hatch by 8/2.
I am with you! I just set 12 Buff Silkie eggs under 2 broody Cochin Bantams. I gave each of the girls 6 eggs. Bless those little girls hearts, they have both been trying to hatch golf balls for about 10 days now. I wish everybody luck!
My hen gave up
I have 25 in the 'bator on this day; black rosecomb bantam eggs, Silkie X eggs, and EE eggs. I'm doing Chooks Chick's dry incubation method. I added some eggs to the 'bator on the 27th and 30, so I have a full incubator!! Hope we all have a great hatch!
Of 41 eggs that I set, 36 made it to lockdown. Here's hoping for chicks on Saturday!
Quote:I only got 4 in lockdown out of 12 shipped eggs, but those 4 looked pretty good. Keeping my fingers crossed for you! Come on Staurday
I have a broody Light Sussex hen setting on 1 Light Sussex egg, and 4 Serama eggs-all from my flock. They're due on 8/17.
I hatched out one Light Sussex chick on Wednesday, so he would only be around a week old when her eggs hatch so I may try and get her to adopt him as well. We shall see.
I am REALLY interested in trying out the Dry Incubation Method. How does it work?
