    Hey, looks like we might be setting eggs on either 10/20 or 10/21, anyone else??

    We have been collecting from our 4 pullets for about 3 days now and got 4 eggs today, so that has put us up to 8 eggs, we are only planning on setting 12 because they may or may not be fertilized.

    I have some in the fridge that have only been in there a few days, so I thought I might take a few of them out, just to see what happens??

    So if you are setting on either of those dates and you would like to join us for a chicken hatch, come on 'over'.

    Got 1 dozen eggs now, got our last 4 today. Love my girlies!

    I have to wait for my dad to get our heaters installed in the dining room and living room, so that should be sometime tomorrow. I am going to get the incubator out in the morning and set it up and let it run to get everything ready.

    I do hope these are fertile. We just need a few more pullets, so I am crossing my fingers. [​IMG]

    I may take a few out of the fridge, still haven't decided if I will or not????? Wish us luck.

    We have an Olive Egger too. So right now we have I think 3 olives, 3 green (of some sort), 3 pinks and 3 white eggs.

    I set 18 eggs this morning!! the 23rd!!

    7 are Rouen Duck eggs and the others are assorted Chicken eggs-nothing full blooded because I don't have any chickens to match up with my roosters! I have 3 roosters (a black silkie, a BO, and a Black/gold cochin/? (possibly silkie) My eggs are Brown leghorn, RIR, BR, BSL, RSL, and Indian Rivers. Should be for an interesting hatch.
