Oh my how's the weather=} Fall has finally arrived in California with the wind =} better late then never. My favorite season
I got my little mini loaded and running a few minutes ago! These are 8 shipped eggs that arrived yesterday and I am pretty disappointed in the light color of the eggs for Marans but on the plus side they are easier to candle. I wanted to set them last night, but 3 of my 4 children were diagnosed with the flu yesterday :-( and on top of that, it was my oldest son's birthday so- the eggs had to wait until today!
Set more silkie eggs and threw in a few orpingtons as well. Hopefully some cute fluffies in a few weeks.
I'm so excited to join in, I just received my first batch of shipped eggs today so they'll go in the bator tomorrow!! I "won" 10 Silkie eggs and got 12, 4 have detached air cells, I've got all 12 upright right now, and I'll keep them in the cartons until lockdown! I hope someone hatches lol
im in! eggs should be arriving this week
Put my eggs in today. 41 in all. I had 7 extra that wouldn'the fit but I have 2 broody hens that I split them between. It should be fun comparing the incubated eggs with the broody hens. Neither hen has hatched out eggs before so hopefully they don't quit early.
I am so eggcited about everyone's sets =} Good Luck to everyone!
Joining in the fun. My October hatch was a bust- experimenting with x-10, computer controlled incubator and my thermal probe jumped by 0.9 degrees every time it read the temperature.
Solution: switched the darn thing with the temperature probe that runs my iguana enclosure that is more precise, since Mushu the iggy doesn't care if the temperature fluctuates +-4 degrees like the eggs do.
Set 23 fertile eggs from Trader Joe's (got 11/12 to start last time I tried that, but humidity problems did them in before hatch). I will be adding some quail eggs in a few days when they arrive.
Hopefully, I will have fuzzy chicks/quails to play with on Nov 22.
I hope that I've gotten all the problems worked out this time around-steady temps and good humidity for hatching. Wish me luck!
Good luck Hope it goes well
