    I set 24 (16 BR/RIR cross, 4 RIR and 4 mystery eggs from my friend that I don't know are fertile) on Monday. I am early..but in! This is only my second try. The first try ended in a big zero. of the 14 I set, 7 made it to the last week and then just quit. I think my temps were not steady enough. So I rebuilt my incubator and have steadier (hopefully steady enough) temps this time.

    I'm planning to set 2 dozen silkie eggs tomorrow if I receive them in the mail as planned! The post office hasn't scanned my package since it was first dropped off on Tueday. [​IMG]

    Hoping they arrive in great shape and I'll be needing a hatching buddy when they're set!

    My eggs got lost in the mail, so they didn't come yesterday... But tracking shows they are going to be here today! So [​IMG] that they arrive unscathed!

    I'm in! I set on 8.4.11 so I'm early but I need some buddies. [​IMG]

    I've got 38 eggs total. 22 are shipped and the rest are from my neighbor.

    From the shipped eggs I've got:
    Easter Egger
    Golden Lakenvelder
    Blue Laced Red Wynadottes
    Blue Andalusian
    Black Sexlink
    Wheaten Marans
    Welsummer

    From my neighbor I've got:
    Bantam Cochin
    Polish
    Cuckoo Maran

    I've already done some candling and it's looking like at least 19 are doing really good and developing nicely. 14 Are kinda hard to tell. And the remaining 5 aren't looking too good. They're either really porous, completely clear or really strange [​IMG]

    Quote:Woo you got a nice variety there! I am awaiting my 3 dozen jumbo brown coturnix quail eggs. I have 16 button quail eggs in lockdown, and 16 I believe mixed coturnix quail eggs and 4 pekin eggs in the bator. Once my shipment arrives it will be a full house!
