    I set eggs this evening, anyone else?

    I also have a few in a hovabator that wouldn't fit in here. [​IMG]

    I set 4 in my Brinsea Mini....... Does the 24th count? Red Sexlink pullet eggs.

    I had 10 set on 8/7 that should be hatching this weekend, unfortunately we are down to 3 after candling [​IMG] I'm pretty sure I've lost those three too....

    Sure it counts! What are you hatching?

    I have 4 BCMarans, a bunch of Olive Eggers, 2 Jersey Giants, a few Silver Penciled Plymouth Rocks, and BBS Orps.

    I have some bantam cochin eggs for this weekend. They were shipped to me, I think they were scrambled when I got them because the air cell moved in most of them. Then my old incubator had a temp spike. So, we have one egg that looked good, saw movement but then nothing and three eggs which have funky air cells. All of them are dark and I can see the air cell when I light carefully through the top. I'm not turning them anymore hoping that helps.

    I did perform an eggtopsy on one that I pitched, it had a tiny fetus with big eyes, thought maybe it died in the first 5 days. I'll probably keep these in the incubator till they are on day 25. If any of those hatch I'll consider it a miracle.

    I added 4 red sex link eggs yesterday. Not sure of their fertility, hoping to hatch something!

    I set eggs today too! My first time incubating!!! [​IMG] I am using a homemade incubator that my hubby built for me.

    I set 10 silkie eggs that I bought from Bad Azz Silkies of Delaware, and two eggs from my own little flock - the mom is a RIR/GLW cross named Paprika and the dad is Liberace, a white silkie mix. So if those two eggs hatch I will have paparazzis [​IMG]. Paprika will have been laying for a month on Friday so hopefully her eggs are okay. They have been very consistent with size, shape, and shell quality . . . [​IMG]

    I hope we all have good hatches!!

    Melissa,

    Welcome to your new addiction. I started hatching in Spring. I did 3 hatches over the summer and then put the bator away. Well that lasted 2 months and now here I am hatching again!

    So what's the draw to Silkies? I have a lot of breeds but i've never had silkies. They remind me of Fraggles!

    Good Luck!

    Welcome! The dark brown eggs are all Marans, just different shades. What are you hatching?
