    I am setting an interesting little bunch in my incubator on 5/26/11 was wondering if anyone else was planing to set then.
    in incubator
    23 quail eggs
    5 polish eggs
    6 saxony duck eggs
    8 mixed breeds (roster is white leghorn the moms are either barred rocks, silver laced wyandotte or RIR)

    this should be fun hatch. will post pics as they go into the bator in a few days. have to wait or ill be having babies while im on vacation. oh how not fun that would be. let me know what you have going and we can hatch togeter. YAY [​IMG]
     
  2. Hi Anna! I'll be setting eggs here 5/26 --- I've been setting every Thurs this year. More of the same listed below and Mr John has been bringing Delaware eggs the last couple of weeks for me to hatch for him.
    I might look around local and see if I can find something *different* to set --- quail or pheasant or turkey, or something.

    If u go the rout of quail be careful with other animals (cats and dogs) I my pup decided that my newest baby quail were a great snack. I couldn't belive it. He doesn't mess with the chicks or ducks but something about them quail. Lol I felt so bad so now I have puppy proofed their brooder for this next pullet

    I feel you. I'm on day 6 and am thinking about candling them. This will be my first candling so I'm excited.
