    I'm planning to set eggs the first week of February. I have eggs being delivered that week. I am setting BCM, olive Eggers and Ameraucana so far... and maybe a few from my own flock. Anyone else getting ready?

    I just hatched some faverolle, cochins, a silkie mix and EE.

    I'm getting ready, too.
    Mine should be delivered some time that week.
    BCM's, Silkies, Light Sussex and Black Australorps.

    I should have 24+ chicken eggs and 6 duck eggs in a separate incubator by the end of next week. I've never had ducks so this should be interesting.

    I just set 2 sebastopol goose eggs that were shipped here from Florida.

    Both have loose/dislocated air cells and are dirty, but I have high hopes!

    well we're setting 9 mixed breeds in the bator now, and have a game/bantum/mix pullet that has decided to set. she has 5 to 11 eggs under her. haven't wanted to disturb her. either way she's gonna be mamma if she sticks with it for 3 weeks. should be interesting.

    oh good luck! I can't wait to set mine. I'll probably be setting next Friday or so depending on egg shipment. I may set a few of my own too... lol.

    We checked on the broody hen today and she has 8 under her plus the ones we have set in the bator. Heres to a successful hatch.
