    I was thinking of hatching for my class around then. We'll see how things shape up. I want to set one or two of my own silkie eggs, and some Silver Laced Wyandotte eggs and maybe coupla EEs. This will be only the 3rd time I've hatched by incubator. When it gets warmer, I was thinking of letting my little cochin/silkie mix try to hatch some.

    This would be my 3rd as well. I want some more of my mixed backyard girls.

    I'm in! This will be my second hatch :) I have a mîxed bag (4 hens and a roo) I would like 1 or 2 more hens, so I'll be setting 6 before dispatching my rooster :( I have a friend who takes my extras.

    Setting January 24th! I'm setting mine at midnight because my bator runs ever-so-slightly hot, so they're usually a day early.

    I ordered my eggs and will pick up a couple more the weekend before.[​IMG] They will hatch in the classroom (which isn't as fun since I don't get to oogle them all day)..... I ordered a grab-bag of randome LF for education of 6, 12 bantams assorted, will get 2 calico chick eggs and 2 SLW eggs. [​IMG]I'm aiming for the Valentine's set day, but we'll see how shipment and other things go. But, there's no going back now.

    haha, Alwayswantschicks - I for some reason was thinking of the set date for 2/14, but you probably meant for hatching then. That's ok. I am still ready to go, got confirmation email for my egg shipment for that week. Plan to pick up some local eggs and hopefully try one of my own. [​IMG] Can't wait.
