Anyone interested in starting a thread for those of us hatching around Jan 10th? Noticed a couple of people have put eggs in 'bator or under a broody in past day or 2, put mine in yesterday. Is my first attempt ever, so am sure will be freaking out by the New Year, if not sooner. What do you have? How many? & when are you due to hatch? Me: 4 white silkies, 7 standard egg-layin' mixes, and 1 tiny-teeny fragile looking "bonus" Serama egg. Eggs were a "pickup", not ship, from really nice local BYCer. My initial goal was; want some Silkies (& Buff Orps in spring) for SMALL pet quality flock (& some omelettes). But at the last minute decided it would make PERFECT SENSE to grab some barnyard mixes, as "insulation" for the Silkies, to help regulate temps with such a tiny hach. Then they showed me the adorable egg their Serama had just popped out, so didn't have the heart to "leave it behind"... Oh, and as far as the standard mixes go, have a friend that wants them for his farm, so will give them to him. Probably.
