    Anyone setting eggs this weekend? I am setting 14 shipped Silver Laced Wyandottes and 7 of my own Swedish Flower Hen eggs.

    Who's with me?

    Hi I set 17 of my own Brahma eggs, 1st time hatching home bred eggs. I have gold laced, silver lace, buff laced , buff and dark Brahmas. Hope I get some fertile eggs, my girls have only been laying about 1-2 months. I bought my breeders as hatching eggs last year. Still looking for some partridge brahmas too.

    I plan on candling on Monday, since I have to take a batch out that day to put into lockdown. When will you be candling?

    I set 17 OEGB and 5 BSL x OEGB eggs on Tuesday, 2/26 so I'm slight behind y'all. This is my first ever hatch so hopefully all goes well. I also have 7 mallard eggs that I started a week earlier so they would hatch at the same time. Already candled the ducks and definite growth!

    Hi, I started some eggs on the 22nd Feb. I put them under my broody hen.
    So I bought 6 Light Sussex eggs on ebay and so far they are doing well. I candled on day 11 and everything seemed to be going well!

    Mine are coming along well too. I hope to have a good hatch - I just had an entire batch of Marans eggs die after lockdown. 12 eggs. [​IMG]

    Well none of mine were fertile. These were the 1st batch I collected from my home hatched Brahmas from last spring. Guess my roos are missing the spot, lol. I collected another batch and set them last Mon and Tues so will be candling tonight to see if any luck this time.

    Good luck you all, I will be watching your progress. :)
