OK please wish me luck on number 3!! First hatch went well, second one was awful (breeder with non fertile eggs.)

I just set 57 eggs. Edit I had 58 but no room for 1 so that is why I set 57 but at day 7 I put the left over one in once I clearned some non developing eggs so 58 eggs total were sent!

Breeders were all from BYC

Papa Brooder (MFL, Speckled Sussex, and Gold/Blue Laced Orp)
bwalden (Welsummer)
cpartist (F1 & F2 Oe)

9 Millie Fleur Leghorn
6 F1 Olive Eggers
10 F2 Olive Eggers
14 Welsummer
11 Speckled Sussex
8 Gold/Blue Laced Orp

For my first hatch I bought a Brinsea Octogon Advanced 20 EX and now I just bought an Eco so I am getting even crazier! :)

Nice looking set of eggs! Hope all goes well. Please keep updating so we can see how they are all developing... and of course, chick pics are a must when the time comes!

Ok day 10 update!

I am SO THRILLED!! All 3 breeders I got eggs from are awesome!!

Papa Brooder (MFL, Speckled Sussex, and Gold/Blue Laced Orp)
bwalden (Welsummer)
cpartist (F1 & F2 Oe)


6/9 Millie Fleur Leghorn
6/6 F1 Olive Eggers
7/10 F2 Olive Eggers
9/14 Welsummer
8/11 Speckled Sussex
6/8 Gold/Blue Laced Orp YAH since these are $20 an egg!!!

42 out of 58 appear to be developing, that is 72%!!! I said 58 and not 57 because I had one left over at set that I added in at day 7 when I cleared room from non developing eggs.

SO EGG CITED! I can candle again tonight and take some photos. A few of the speckled sussex have bad saddle air cells but since many of my SFH hatch did as well and most of them hatched I am not worried!
