Hi BYC! My daughter and I put eggs in the incubator this afternoon in hopes of having chicks for Easter. The details; Hova Bator 1602n with fan and auto egg turner. 20 FBCM eggs from a breeder 01 Marans rooster x olive egger 21 FBCM rooster x our own Welsummer hens This is our first time incubating and we are raring to go. We have read many great threads here and are cautiously/anxiously/ optimisitc that all will go well. We picked up the FBCM yesterday from a backyard breeder. He seemed to have a nice clean, small operation with healthy and pretty birds. Purchased 16 and he threw in some extras. Thanks Ryan! My only doubt is that our Welsummer hens only started laying the first week of January. Wellies on the left. Man, everybody mentions it, but pictures sure do not do these eggs justice! Wish us Luck!! Any tips and advice are greatly appreciated.
