    I have 7 production reds in the hatcher. They should hatch Sunday,but I'm expecting them to start tomorrow. I told myself I'm done until spring. Today my mother in law gave me a dozen eggs she got from a friend. They have been washed, refrigerated and I have no idea ow fresh they are. I debated on what to do,but the bator won! Just set them tonight so we will see.

    I just put 13 Silkie/Sizzle eggs in a Mini Advanced 2 days ago. Going to try hatching without the turn disk. I am turning the eggs 3 times a day by hand. I have never tried hatching with manual egg turning so keeping my fingers crossed.

    [​IMG]i started my second hatching on thursday. i got a bunch of eggs from neighbors so they are mostly going to be mixed breeds. but there is a very good verity. pretty excited!!!!! [​IMG]

    i wish i had some silkies to add. i only have one silkie hen right now and she is the coolest, the sassiest thing EVER. so much character! i also want some polish ones. so I'm just looking for affordable eggs around the area
