    If I can get my incubator's thermostat to stabilize, I will be setting 12 Blue splash marans, 12 Ameraucanas, 12 French Black Copper Marans and six EEs. **fingers crossed**

    My best friend has what she calls her "Doctor Suess" flock, all purebred hens, everything from Turkens to Black Copper Marans. It turns out the Sizzle I gave her last year is a rooster, and after a test hatch that revealed 4 fuzzy legged Easter Eggers, 2 of which frizzled beautifully, I asked her to save her eggs for a week for me to hatch out some frizzled little bit of everythings!

    So I will happily join your hatch, with my 4 dozen frizzled fathered eggs! These are going to be some funky chicks! [​IMG]

    UPDATE: I had enough of my own Sizzle, Giant Cochin, and Speckled Sussex eggs to add another dozen to the pile. So I set five dozen eggs about ten minutes ago.

    I didn't get my bator to stabilize until today... so my eggs went in today at 10AM. And there were more eggs than I thought <G> ended up setting a dozen Black split to lav Amerucanas, a dozen Blue, black and split to lav amerucana's, half dozen SQ Silkies (mostly Paints, maybe some lav over porcilen ), about 8 RIR over Easter Eggers and 4 silkie (white over partridge) and 4 of my one of the silkies <or possibly rir/blue andalusian croos> over blue andalusians and brown egg layers <not sure which of the girls 2 of them were but could be Buff orp, rir,black sexlink, or crazy rescue hen> if I remember right I set about 4 1/2 dozen eggs.... I think the temps are almost back to normal <G> at 9pm <G>
