    My Hovabator just came in yesterday morning and I set 42 eggs last night at 7 for a test run before the EHAL. These eggs are from my own flock :)
    Roosters include: 1 Naked Neck, 1 Barred Rock (these two were culled a week before I started collecting eggs so may not be the fathers), 1 Easter Egger, 1 Silver Sebright/Thai mix and 1 Welsummer/Barred Rock mix (the Welsummer mix is young and has only shown interest in the Faverolle). I'm expecting the EE to be the father of most since he is my dominant roo.
    The eggs collected are:
    6 Jungle Fowl
    6 Blue Marans
    6 Faverolle
    4 Black Sumatra
    4 Red Ranger
    4 Ameracauna
    3 Barnyard Mix browns
    2 Barnyard Mix whites
    2 Silver Grey Dorking
    2 Bantam Crevecoeur
    1 Welsummer
    1 Olive Egger
