    Set a dozen eggs. Mainly Silkie eggs. With a few Golden Sebrights along for the ride! So far ive successfully hatched out 7 tiny baby Golden sebrights. Here is a pic of those. Its a bad one bc they wont sit still!

    Yep, set some late Thursday night and another batch yesterday morning. First time attempt at a hatch on my own. We had a broody hatch out 8 on her own in June. That was the first ever hatch we've had. Now I have to see if I can top her. [​IMG]

    I set a bunch this morning - 36 silkie eggs, 4 JG, four blue orps, 12 easter eggers. All but the orps and the jersey giants are shipped eggs, so I expect quite a few of them to be pulled by next week but we shall see! I had to make sure to not hatch just ONE chick. [​IMG]

    Its an addiction, hatching your own eggs, This is my first year dealing with chickens. Now my yard is over run with my winged friends! I think i have a little over 20 chickens. and Hatching out new ones almost every 21 days. ! I love it. Even my 2 year old gets into it when they are hatching.

    I just set a dozen grocery store eggs that look like Welsummer or Maran eggs - know of any other breeds those could be with the dark speckled look? I was so not planning on doing a staggered hatch, but when I found eggs that dark in the store I couldn't resist!
