    Can't believe I've filled the bators again, Just hatched Silkies and bantom cochins 2 weeks ago... oh well, in 3 wks we'll have [​IMG]


    Saturday was day 21 and Our ne babies are here:

    Hatch Results: Out of 12 Serama eggs - 9 babies ( 3 just blood rings)
    18 Americana - 17 babies (1 never hatched, died)
    6 Bantam Araucana - 6 babies
    4 bantam cochins (my test eggs) - 4 hatched

    So out of 40 eggs, 36 hatched.. That really good, the Serama, Americana and Bantam Araucana eggs came from a poultry sale...

    Isn't this fun!! (Notice it wasn't a question [​IMG]) I just put in 6 buttercups and 6 speckled sussexs myself. I also have 6 - 6 week olds and 2 8 week olds living in my basement. I'm hoping to move them into the juvenile shed next week when it warms up - with a heat lamp of course. Good luck on your hatch.

    Thatz a great hatch rate! So by "poultry sale" do you mean an auction? (just curious, because poultry auctions are all we have around here.

    We don't have any auctions around here [​IMG]

    I usually buy eggs online for stuff I want. You need to post pics of the babies so we can see them!!!
