Well, today is day 10! I've been candling here and there but today I had decisions to make. Who's staying and who's going? Which eggs are clear and which ones are quitters :)
Unfortunately all of the Silkie eggs we got (that were in my bator) are gone. Only 1 was fertile and it quit early on. Of the 3 that Jenn kept, only 2 were fertile, 1 quitter and 1 little one that looks great!
I have 8 BLRW left in the bator but only 5 that I am confident about keeping.
There are still most of the Lt. Brahma, Dk Brahma and a few Blue Wheaten Marans too for a total of 24 left in the incubator to finish out the hatch. We will see how it goes these last 10-11 days.
I am pretty bummed that out of 43 eggs I am down to 24 but I understand thems the breaks on shipped eggs etc.
We will see how it goes. For my next hatches I am hoping to get some more local eggs since those worked out so well. 28/30 went into lockdown (last three days) and 25 hatched. That's pretty darn amazing!
