I set my very first eggs yesterday. 16 olive eggers and 8 EE. Some I got through BYC auction and some are mine. I'm trying not to get too excited yet. It seems like so many things can go wrong. I have hatched with a broody before and that was a breeze. This I'm afraid will have some trial and error, but hopefully chicks at the end.
I am setting mine tonight! I have a hatch buddy! Woohoo the parents to mine are a sex link roo with white leghorn hens. What I'm going for is white chickens with light barring, and I'm hoping to get a few red barring ones as well. I'm so excited!
