    It's just amazing that in 3 weeks chicks go from 0 to live, zooming peeps.
    Hope your hatch goes well.

    Set my first eggs, 10 Silver Phoenix (I hope pure bred, but possibly mixed with Cochin, no laughing), and 1 Cochin (again possibly mixed with Silver Phoenix).

    Hi New2chooks, I'm new-ish too. Isn't it exciting? I just set my first eggs on the first. i saw veins in some today even though I promised myself no candling until day 8. I guess I need to sit on my hands!!![​IMG]
    What kind did you set? Are we close to each other? I'm in Marysville, 30 miles north of Sacramento. What kind of bator are you using?

    I am using a still air havabator and turning by hand....yikes...sooo nervous. I set standard blue and blue splash cochins, americana cochin cross, barred roch cochin cross, silver laced sebright possibly crossed with a black japanese and some of my friend's barnyard mixes. i thought it'd be good practice before spring to see if I could do it but i'm already shopping for eggs for my next hatch![​IMG]
