    I'm gonna take a stab and say about 14 days or so. The shell is a little more full of darkness than the ones in the bator that are 11 days.

    Know what ya mean. It never gets old and the hands get numb (sitting on them) at times letting them work on it a good 24 hrs.

    That's what friends are for. To help with the chicken math.


    On a different note. Today I got a whopping 6 eggs. It's been a good while since I've gotten that many at once. It even still a little early yet for egg gathering around my place. I don't really expect any more, since I only have 12 that are laying age right now.

    Ok. Unless they are blood rings or start to smell I would hold off tossing until day 17-18.... That's when I make my final cull of eggs and it's saved me more times than once with an egg.

    I'm thinking that I should just pull all of the eggs my girls have layed. I know they're broody and want to raise a clutch. But it's too cold. They're not sitting yet because they're not done laying. The embryos will all be dead before they actually get to setting. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] But the good thing is that they're ready. As it warms up,whenever that is,I know that I've got some girls that are interested! Until then,I'll just love on y'all's babies!!!!

    God bless,Glory




    Ps...SallySunshine-Yes it is way cool! Only problem is......IM NOT A MORNING PERSON!!![​IMG][​IMG] lol Unless I'm hunting or fishing,then it's ok to be awake that early. [​IMG]
