    Hi [​IMG],
    I have two incubators going right now. In the first are some Blue and Black Splash Ameraucanas and a few golden orpingtons. They will hatch hopefully in a week. But yesterday I started another incubator with some Welsumers some Blue Laced Red Wyandottes and some Lavendar Orpingtons! These are my first chickens and I am in chickie heaven [​IMG] [​IMG] !!! When I candled the eggs that have a week left they are all actively moving and look real good [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I set some last night. 30 silkie eggs from Mary and 6 silkie eggs from my own flock. It's been a while since I hatched eggs but I definitely learned from my mistakes my last two hatches. I think I know what I'm doing this time [​IMG] Oh and I'm using a brand new LG circulated air incubator and using an acu rite thermometer/hygrometer along with the one that came with the bator since I don't fully trust it.

    Put 24 serama eggs in 'bater ' this morning. I have read they are VERY difficult to hatch in an incubator, especially since they were shipped eggs, but giving it a try anyway.
    I am on pins and needles hoping I do it right..keep checking temp and humidity every 15 minutes! Are ya'll doing the same?
    Maybe we can encourage each other!
