    So I set 8 BLRW, 3 SS, 1 BCM / RIR cross, 10 SLP eggs, and 4 SLP crosses on March 30th. I also have another 12 silkie eggs coming in next week that I am going to manually turn and up the humidity and hope for a better hatch than 0% the last time I tried silkies.

    Haven't seen one in a live duck, but did see something similar in a DIS. Have a peahen with a beak deformity. Will post pictures of her later.

    Heard my first peep! Peeked in the window and saw three external pips out of 11 so far! Yippee!!! Life is good! Had a rough day yesterday at work, so nothing like bringing a little life into the world to make it better. :)


    Had the hovabator at about 35 humidity and increased it to 60 this morning with a wet paper towel, becauseit was still hanging down at 35. Hoping for a great hatch! :) I have about half silkies and half large breed chickens (plymouth rock hens crossed with my largest any other breed fair winning rooster.) .

    Getting ready to go into lock down with my golden necked d'uccles! Tomorrow is day 18...

    And yesterday was so beautiful, I stayed outside working most of the day. Got a pretty red glow from it, because of course I didn't think the first day that it was about 63 degrees I would need sunscreen! But on a good note, got the second roosts poop board up, got the oyster shell hopper mounted to the wall by the feeders, and another nest box in (which no one is brave enough to use yet). Getting ~5 eggs a day now! [​IMG] And I have been eating omelettes and scrambled eggs almost every morning for 2 weeks now. So delicious!
