    I
    Many of my marans were broody until a few days ago . . . .they broke up after I took their eggs because they were not being careful . . . . all hens using one nest box filled with two cramped broodies. . .  . .

    Love my black copper marans girls. ((shakes head))
    [/quoteI'm excited to get some pure Marans and my Phoenix will be too she is sitting on air now lol and her buddy is looking like she will be broody (1egg) but she's finicky, hopefully she will decide by the time my Eggies come so my cursed incubator won't be able to put its Roo mojo on a single egg

    Sounds like hygrometer/thermometer issues. I think that if a lot of us calibrated our thermometers/hygrometers, we might find them off..... just sayin. Also, I think that shipping plays havoc on the air cells. You guys should read the stuff in this thread:https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/newestpost/704328

    Sally Sunshine is the hatching-issues guru and she is super sweet, but if you go back and read the thread, you may find a lot of help.

    She also has a hatching-issues-helping tutorial in her sig line:https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-101

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/step-by-step-guide-to-assisted-hatching

    If you PM her, she can give you a really good link to a Turkey hatching tutorial which is also really helpful.

    No I cut a flat in half so there will be 25 eggs in each one then I put another empty half flat on top and tape then wrap in bubble wrap and tape so they stay put. Then they go in a large priority box and I pack either shredded paper or plastic grocery bags under, around and on top of the bundle. I try to prevent the bundle from moving around in transit to prevent breakage. Fertility is good here now. I did have an issue with it but now that it's about time for me to stop hatching the fertility is really good. I just had a hatcher full of them hatch. There where a few clears but I don't think I've ever had 100% fertility. I have 2 hens per roo in a cage. I have 3 cages that hold 5 hens and a roo in each.

    Congrats. I hatched out a couple like that one. They are Ghosts eggs I to believe. I have a frizzled one and a smooth one. I can't tell very well but are the primaries on yours looking like they're frizzled. From the pic it looks like the ends are coming out turned up a bit.

    I have 3 people down for a flat of eggs. After I fill those orders I'll be culling back for winter. Rather I should say processing for us for winter meals.

    CyndiChick 1 flat
    yinepu 1 flat in sept
    llbolen 1 flat.

    If I missed anybody please let me know.

    My splash hen is laying while the other is still broody. So I have splash silkie eggs and sizzle eggs from a mixed color pen and I have a white silkie hen that has a few black spots on her that is also in the sizzle pen. So I'm gonna do a mixed auction

    Up for AUCTION is one dozen (12) eggs from 2 pens, Splash bearded silkie pen which has a roo that has botten 1st place 3 times in BV and is about to be shown again on the 27th and 2 more times in Sept. He is from Bobbi Porto stock. The splash sizzle pullet was shown also and won 1st in the "other" feather legged catagory.

    Auction bidding starts at $15 with shipping at $15. Auction ends in 24 hours and payment is expected promptly at auctions end and will be shipped on Monday. I bubble wrap each egg and put them between 2 egg flats and tape that together. The bundle is surrounded on all 6 sides with either shredded paper or plastic grocery bags to prevent them from moving in the box. Eggs will be set with air cell up. Out of the chicks i've hatched I have great fertility and hatch rates but I can't guarantee what the PO does to them in transit and incubation methods.

    The sizzles colors are black, blue,splash, silver laced grey and they are covered by a white silkie roo that has a few black spots on him.

    White silkie hen. It's an old pic and she was broody at the time.
    [​IMG]

    I just took some pics of the sizzles I hatched lately, well my broody's did. Here are pics of them. I do have a few more that are outside in the juvie pen that are a bit older. I'll get pics of those when I go back out for my last egg check.

    This little partridge looks like it's gonna be a frizzled silkie which is showable

    [​IMG]
    This one has smooth feathers and are not frizzled

    [​IMG]
    This is another that looks like a frizzled silkie

    [​IMG]
    These next ones are a bit older and are all frizzled. this one is white

    [​IMG]
    A blue and a white. A different white than the one above

    [​IMG]
    this is a beautiful partridge with a white hiding behind it. Same as a white one above. I just have 2 whites in this group.

    [​IMG]
    The same 2 whites and same partridge and a blue

    [​IMG]
    A view of it's crest coming in

    [​IMG]
    The partridge again, one of my favorites. I guess you can tell.

    [​IMG]
    This is one of Ghosts babies. This ones mother is the silver laced grey smooth hen. You can see here it's crest coming in.

    [​IMG]
    Same chick as above just different angle. I got 2 smooth chicks out of this bunch which are a black and a blue.

    The white, black and partridge hens are not laying right now so several of these chicks you may not get any like them. The partridge hen is back in production but I don't think she is laying again yet. She helped brood these chicks along with her pen mate the black hen. The white hen is out of the pen preparing for a show. the black hen will also go to the same show.

    The one below is one of the white ones in the juvie pen. It had escaped and thought I would get a pic while I had my hands on it. I'm keeping this one and named her Lisa. Since her mothers name is Pricilla. lol
