    I think I'm in trouble-I over ordered eggs for my bator that fits 42 eggs I stuck 56 in-alot were silie eggs-so I put them on top of eachother on the turner-well...I candled and saw 1 big blood ring-garbage-like 7 clear-garbage-5 questionable-kept "just in case" the rest all viening jumpers!-If I get 40+ to hatch I will drop and cry-my first batch ever I had 38 eggs all duds! This will keep me busy big time-no more incubating for me this year-I think? shhh dont tell DH [​IMG] They are due to start hatching out on the 12th-through the rest of the week-staggered because of the deliveries-I bought from 4 BYC'ers and 3 are mine..can't wait [​IMG]

    I have bbs silkies due on the 10th. My eggs are double stacked and I am hand turning right now because the duck eggs are hogging up my second bator. Certainly they will hatch this weekend!

    I have 23 in the bator and just candled for the first time today. We are due on the 15th. This is my first ever attempt at incubating, so it is a bit nerve wracking![​IMG]

    we are close... due the 15th. I started with 14 shipped to me, one was cracked in the box. at day 14 had one meat spot and one clear. so we are down to 11 spotted australian duck eggs. They are all growing good, so my fingers are crossed. [​IMG]
