October Is knocking, how long do you hatch? Do you hatch year round or stop for the winter?
I don't generally stop for winter, but as a rule I can only hatch a few times a year. More if the hens don't go broody.
I usually stop in September and then start again in March, but I don't think that's going to happen this year. I have three clutches of eggs in incubators now that are due to hatch in early October, so not slowing down anytime soon
This is our first time hatching our own. We had to quit for winter because hatcheries didn't ship. Now I can time my replacement/for-sale pullets how I want. My baby coop is great in winter, fully insulated and low cost to heat & light.
I'm definitely not stopping just yet. I have a shipment of RIR eggs coming in the next week or so. I'm excited since this is my first time with shipped eggs.
"stop hatching" - please define?
To pause hatching and go through withdrawals untill you can take it no more and spend way too much on buying enough eggs to overflow your incubator...
I want to keep hatching but I have nowhere to put anymore chicks, and am afraid I will have no one to sell them to.
