    I have D'Ullce eggs, Wellsummer eggs, Blue Andalusian eggs and a assortment of other eggs. This is my 2nd to my last hatch, but I really want these eggs to hatch!!!
    These are important becuase these chicks will be added to my flock.
    So we are on Day 20 and all I have seen is 2 eggs from that whole batch wiggling.

    I just had to hatches before become duds as well. I was so sad. [​IMG][​IMG] All the hatches before that I have had some awsome hatches and numbers and one was even 100%hatch! So all that said and done.........

    I candled on day 18 before I put them in and they were doing great as usall. Temp has been 100 and humididty has beenn65-70% and I have not opened the incubator once!
    This is with my good ol Hova the one that usually hatches better then the LG which I used the last 2 times.

    Please please everyone keep your fingers and toes crossed....I don't know what else to do except bite my nails.

    Thank you!

    It is so hard to sit and watch a batch of eggs day after day to hatch and then they dont. [​IMG]

    I just want good luck with this one!

    Hi neighbor!

    Just wanted to say I have fingers crossed for a good hatch.

    I totally sympathize with the nerves... I've got duck eggs in my homemade bator, my very first hatch, and I've got welsummers, marans, and barnevelder eggs on the way, as well as a genesis 1588. It really is contagious!

    Just out of curiosity, you said that these eggs are to add to your flock... have you been incubating for others, or selling chicks with your other hatches?

    >>thinking hatchy thoughts in your direction<<

    Hey Cham! Yea so close!

    Yea well if they end up being roosters then yes I give them away, can't have that crowing. As if I have a lot of chicks I sell them. [​IMG] I have silkes I am selling that are 2wks from Jodys flock. Such beauties!

    ok finger and toes and eyes crossed this hatch!
