    I'm so excited! I picked up one dozen Ameraucana eggs from a local breeder who has some great lines!! I'm glad his girls laid enough eggs for me to have some.

    Anyone setting eggs tonight? This will be my second hatch.

    Awesome! Welcome to BYC! Are you updating your progress in any other threads? If not - I hope you update here! I'd like to watch how your hatch is coming along.

    What kind of eggs did you set?

    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 :D 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!
