    I now have 4 hatches scheduled in April, Svant Hona, old English self blue bantams, comets, ameraucanas, and now more Welsummers. Some are going to be sold as chicks, but the black hens are keepers. I still keep looking for more hatching eggs for sale. I think I have a problem.

    I'm going to be joining this Hatch A Long! I received 24 more EE/OE eggs to set (they have awful, free moving air cells, just like the 24 I had for the Easter HAL) and I'll be setting some eggs from my new turkey hens. They spent some time with their previous owner's tom before coming to me, so I'd like to see if some of their eggs are fertile from the previous tom before my guy takes over the job! I'll likely be setting everything on April 1st.

    Wonderful, you have a busy April scheduled.

    Good luck with the shipped eggs, I hope you get some Poults too!

    Does setting in March 31st count as setting for April?

    If so, I'll be in.
    These are going to be "For Sale Only" chicks, but if a special one pops out, well you know that story.

    Yes, as long as the egg spends one in in April in an incubator or under a hen, it counts. Glad you're able to join us!
