    Yippee someone to hatch with! I was hoping someone would be setting around that date. I've got 6 orders of eggs from different places coming that day unless one is late & arrives on Monday (hope not!) then I have 1 order of eggs that arrived today that I'm settong tomorrow. I have 2 incubators & I'm hatching several breeds of chickens, ducks, turkey, guineas, & pheasants. I haven't even looked to see what the expected hatch date would be for the chickens so I guess like you said it's 6/12? Awesome, good luck everyone & I look forward to reading/posting updates, candling results, & hopefully baby picks!

    Yes! I have some hatch buddies here to hatch with me! I can't wait to see the pics of the chicks, and hopefully post my own! I'm a bit nervous tho, my last few hatches haven't been sucessful. The worst part is, I already feel impaitent for the chicks and the eggs aren't even here yet! [​IMG]

    23 days to go......

    Me too, I hope everyone has a good hatch. Even one little chick will be better than my last time, due to a faulty thermometer that read 100F while it was really 90F, my hatch rate was 0%! This time around though I bought a new thermometer as well as a hyrdrometer so my chicks won't be shrink wrapped like they were last time either. I'll have 111 eggs in my bators w/out including the extras sent or the ones damaged through shipment, so that means 111+ eggs I'll have to turn by hand 3 times a day for 21-28 days...whew! Well I guess todays the big day, I hope everyone's eggs arrive in one piece (=

    Hi Y'all!
    I set 21 BLRW eggs from KinderKorner last night (5/21) and they are due on my birthday 6/11 [​IMG]
    This is my 6th batch of shipped eggs this year and they arrived in the best condition that I have seen yet.
    so, I have high hopes that it will be a good hatch....for shipped eggs that is.[​IMG]
    Good luck to all!
