    I will hatch into June maybe July.

    I will hatch as many PC's as my 2 hens get me. EJB has first dibs, beyond that I am open, I can hatch mine anytime. I told everyone last night I would wait to set eggs until tonight so I could get a few more. It worked in spades....sorta..


    I got 13 eggs today, 6 Creamettes, 2 SS's, 2 Toads, 2 PC's and one EE. But if you add those up they total 13... 13 is a bad number. and to prove that I managed to break 2 CLB eggs... Yes, I said a word not allowed on BYC when they hit the ground.

    I have 57 eggs going into the incubator tonight. Pending good candling of the last 11.

    Oh bummer, so sorry to hear..

    That is just strange, How is Roostie doing? Are they all from those you got a Ramsey feed?

    I bet that egg was just a whoops, they happen.

    Got up to 70 here today! Set up my grooming table on a deck to groom out a few dogs. Finished with the first, took him into the house, came out with the next one only to find my two turkey hens on my table inspecting my grooming stuff. They didnt want to get down either! Ya'll need turkeys....they are too funny!

    There is an old adage our first frost is 6 months after the first thunder. So you will be getting frost August 18th!!

    You could probably twist my arm on a couple PC cockerels . Good comb addition for the auto sexing EE .

    I am guessing I would have a few extra of them. I want to get more hens so I suppose I will have to keep 15-20 birds to get 7-8 hens.
