    Soooo...we have such an excess amount of eggs saved up in the fridge now...probly about 2 dozen [​IMG]. we're never going to eat them all.


    soo last night I got this crazy notion that this morning I was going to go out, and any eggs I found were going in the incubator, since atleast 3 of our 4 mature roosters have been doing thier jobs OVER-time [​IMG]

    so thats what I did, I found two eggs in the chicken house, one in the feed store room, (neither are completely done yet)..one in the doghouse that is for our pitbull x hound when he goes outside(that one was still warm!)

    and then I found out where one of our little OEG mutts was attempting to hide her nest of two eggs(one she'd just laid). I took those, but I think from now on I'm going to let her be, maybe she'll brood!

    then I took two more brown eggs and another bantie egg from the fridge.

    I set them all this morning after the bator was set up, if we're lucky, they should hatch on the 25th!! [​IMG]

    the eggs will most likely be OEG x who knows x Silkies (the three bantie eggs)

    there will be aleast one Brahma x Silkie or Dominique.

    and the rest will be a combination of either Wyandotte,Cochin,or mutt hens mixed with either silkie, Sebright,mutt rooster, or Dominique [​IMG]

    I'm really hoping these little guys hatch, if they do, who knows, i might do another hatch after them! [​IMG]

    course then I'll haffta start selling chicks [​IMG]

    I just set 12 more eggs that I had tried to take to work to sell, that NO ONE wanted [​IMG]

    2$ a dozen, home grown eggs, and no one wanted them, so i threw them in the bator with the other 8 I set the fourth.

    if they hatch they hatch, if not they don't [​IMG]

    I'm hoping that some atleast do from both sets

    I set two of my mallard eggs too (shoot me,please!).

    I had to move the ducks and geese to the feed room/brooder room, cause we're finishing the ducks half of the big pen tomorrow!

    they'll have lots more room to run around, and places I'm going to fix up for them to nest, but I figured the duck eggs are the same as the chickens, if they hatch they hatch, if not they don't, it's something to do, but all the same I'm hoping they will.
