    I set 12 eggs today: Sebright, Black Rosecomb, Silkie-X, Olive Egger. Mom asked me a few days ago if I have any extra hens, so I'll be giving her the hens that for one reason or another didn't make the cut as breeders. Mom and Sis have only 5 hens left and aren't getting any eggs at all because they're molting!

    Good luck on your bantam eggs; I dearly love those little chickens.

    What is the moon thread? [​IMG] I set 12 golden sebright bantams, 9 self blue bantams, and 9 mille fleur bantams! This is only my second time incubating. The first time was with my homemade incubator. I set 14 eggs and got 7 chicks. They were a really mixed bunch of babies I bought really cheap off of e-bay. I'm hatching bantams this time around since I have one bantam rooster and he has no girls! He is the sweetest little thing and does a great job taking care of my small flock out back, but those are giants to him! Now he'll have some ladies he can really romance and they are super pretty bantams to boot! My eggs are due to hatch on September 21st! [​IMG]
