    Good news on keeping the temps with power outage.

    You've had your share of a variety of predators.

    Welcome to the hatch a long!

    I wrapped it with a towel. I was filling up ziplock bags with warm water to put at bottom of bator too. (Kinda like you can have them do with shipped day old chicks. I didn't need the bags because the power came on quickly and the dropped temp very little. They were short outages but I was PREPARED. (I live kinda rural and we've only lived here 2 months; we didn't know to expect for length of power outages). The eggs would not have even cooled off. My candling skills at this point were more risky!

    Where did you get the Brabanters? And I saw in you signature you have Pavs. I am searching for those too.
    Best luck on your hatch. I can't wait to read about it and see pic!

    I am wanting to join. I am planning to hatch some local Silkies and some Bantam Silver Penciled Wyandottes. I also might throw in some of my OE's. Right now my bator is full of Texas A&M quail. and 5 OE's. I'm wondering 1 dozen Silkies or 2? I am wanting to put the Silkies under my BSPW roo. I am wanting his color pattern. Does anyone know what color Silkie would work?

    I am so glad to see you post. Haven't seen your eggs on Ebay in a long time or seen you post on the Middle TN line. I was sorta worried. Hey maybe you know the answer to my post about what color Silkie should I pair with my Bantam Silver Penciled Wyandotte roo to produce chicks with his color pattern.
