    I'm in... I was debating between this or setting on the 3rd so they would hatch on my birthday.

    @NotAFarm just set a reminder on my phone to start collecting the eggs week before, that should work thank you. @KYTinpusher That excuse will not work for me as I get way over my head with hatching last spring I ended hatching more than I could house, Hubby build another bigger coop I don't think he can be convinced to build anymore [​IMG]

    I get 95 to 100% on fertility and hatch rate has been 80 to 90 from egg to chick on my eggs. Shipped eggs from someone else I get 0 to 60 % I get higher hatch rates on shipped eggs that use the special handling option at the post office. So now that is the only way I will ship them too

    That is good to know. I have wondered if it made any difference.

    [​IMG] Glad you will be able to join in the fun!!
    I'm hoping I'll have a broody...or three...so I can be "official"!
    I'll be hatching my own or maybe some for a friend from her flock if I do.
