    Count me in - I have some silkie eggs from Marie Martin set under my broodies that are about 3-4 days along and I set some cochin eggs from DANNY plus all the green and brown eggs I had last night. So today is day one for me.


    ETA - This will *probably* be my last hatch this summer, I think, maybe, we'll see how it goes...

    My husband is an enabler - he sees me sell the chicks and then says - Hey why don't you just incubate some more - you get more money for the eggs than selling them for eating.

    I'm jealous. Everyone has already started. I just received my eggs today. All 12 arrived unbroken. I'm going to let them rest today and set them tomorrow morning.

    It looks like I've got 6 Mottled Houdan, 3 White Crested Blue Polish, and 3 Buff Laced Polish.

    Quote:I put in my d'uccles this morning but just received my silkies today. I'll be setting those tomorrow so you're not alone [​IMG]. I've got 4 buff laced polish that are due to hatch on the 26 [​IMG] so I will hopefully have some top hats also.

    I set 40 chicken eggs and 8 guinea eggs around 2 am. I have mixed hopes for these eggs... hoping I get lots of chickies, and that the guinea eggs aren't fertile. I know it sounds weird, but I only have the guinea hen and if hers are fertile, that means they will be the freaky looking guinea-chicken hybrid things LOL!
