This is just for fun. I am on my third incubation this spring. I have had a time of it as this is the first year that I am hatching with an incubator. My first hatch gave me only 1 out of 17 eggs. That was a tough pill to swallow as it hit my arrogance hard; I believed that if a chicken could do it then it must be easy. Now I have had to face the sobering thought that a chicken is better at something than I am! But, the last hatch was 3 out of four ducklings, 3 out of four bantams and 1 out of 1 buff sussex! Yippeee They are now two weeks old and, this is the important bit, I set all non-pointy eggs. They should be, according to science, pullets. I have no idea what they are yet gender-wise but I will announce it on here. If anyone else also wants to set non-pointy eggs and tell me what they got, I would love to hear about it. The key is not the roundness or length of the egg but the least difference in the circumference at each end of the egg. see photo diagram. Sorry its sideways but basically, in the picture egg A would be a roo and the others pullets. Who is with me in this egg-speriment?
