    I just couldn't wait to hatch out spring chicks so no time like the present! I'll call them Valentine's Day chicks! I ordered eggs on ebay....Black Australorp, Ameraucana, Lavender/Black Ameraucanas, and Welsummer! I've always done well with shipped eggs. Now just waiting for them to arrive this week and get them set in the bator. I'm so excited. I love hatching my own chicks [​IMG]

    Setting up the bator today and let it run a few days before the eggs arrive.

    The bator is set up and running now. Regulating the temp and eggs should begin arriving by tomorrow or Weds. Can't wait to get them set.

    myfinefeatheredfriend, what kind of shipped eggs did you order?

    mtns of ,NC.
    I set my own ? fertile eggs on the 14 of Jan in a 1588 incubator. I have a young Wheaten Ameracuanna roo and hen plus multiple other hens in my flock of 11 hens. After 7 days I have candled and it seems he only gave his kisses to the sweet little Am. hen, the EE hen and maybe the Marans hen. Sigh! 13 maybes at this point.
    I hope everyone else is having better luck. I WANT BABIES BAD! The weather on the coast of NC this yr. is Spring like and has me absolutely springy. Kathynmo has not started her breeding yet. It is cold out there at this time of year. So I guess we can start it off can I join you here? Gloria Jean

    wdearjr3 - what kind of eggs did you purchase?

    Crazyhen - I ended up setting 41 eggs on the 18th. So this is day 2. I can't wait for fuzzy butts again! I have some Black and Lavender Ameraucana eggs in there and regular Ameraucanas, Black Australorp, and Welsummer and 6 mixed breed eggs for fun! [​IMG]
