    6 Button Quail egg were due to hatch today, but they haven't so far. [​IMG] But I heard all six of the quail eggs pecking inside of the shell so I'm keeping me fingers crossed for a good hatch! [​IMG]
    Okay, so 6 days ago I started saving my quail eggs for another batch. So my female layed her 6th egg today so I stuck 6 Button Quail Eggs in the bator, and 8 chicken eggs. 4 Standard Eggs, and 4 Bantam Eggs. The Buttons are due to hatch: 7/7/2010
    The Chicken eggs are due: 7/12/2010
    Anybody wonna be my hatching buddy?
    ETA: Add Pictures!

  2. I'll be your hatching buddy! Just set 33 eggs that I picked up from emvickrey. She has some gorgeous chickens; I hope these eggs produce just as beautifully! They are Ameraucanas, Silkie/Ameraucana cross, and Production Red, with a Phoenix chick for good measure! I'm calculating that they'll go into lockdown on July 10 and start hatching around July 13. *merrily marches forward to Ray Stevens' "In The Mood"*

    That's so neate!
    I would have put more chicken eggs in the bator, but my mom wouldn't let me other wise I would have put all 31 chicken eggs I go today in there! lol [​IMG] Oh, well ... can't have your way all the time! lol [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
     
  4. I'm hoping for a great hatch for both of us. I have my incubator in a well-built and insulated wellhouse; it's cooler in there than it has been outside (temps in the mid-90s and a heat index between 100 and 105). Everything is going well so far! [​IMG]
