EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

My incubators are full so I could have some extra hatching eggs by the end of this week for local pick up.  e-mail gubelman at tcc dot on dot ca

I have:

EO's my first two hatches were 5/9 and 6/8 fertile hatched.  fertility is great and they are laying well now. 

Appenzeller Spitzhauben, my first two hatches were 19/19 and 20/24 fertile eggs hatched.  fertility is great. 

Porcelain bantams (adults were hatched out of d'uccle eggs.  They are booted but not bearded)  great fertility but poor hatchability.  1/5 hatched others all fully developed but were positioned wrong in eggs, not sure if that's because of the turner not doing a good job with the smaller eggs or if it is genetics.  I hatched them in the rollex with the grid for large eggs with the Spitz and EO eggs and moved them to the still air hova for hatching.

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

debbiej I got your e-mail but for some reason I can't reply to it.  I'll send the Spitz eggs along with Paula too then.
IG good news this weekend hatch I had 8 out of 11 porcelains hatch!  These were hatched in a dry, forced air hovabator with an auto turner and moved to the old still air hova to hatch.

Congrats gubi on your excellent hatch. We will have to post some pictures  here of our clean faced beauties. I wonder if I should try a drier hatch, decisions decisions. ...

:excited: frf  and gubi ,  thanks so much for getting these eggs collected and sent for me, I am soo excited and keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to get a few of these Porcelain to hatch, finicky little sweethearts that they are, I have one lonely little egg (of 16) to go into lockdown  tomorrow. 19 more in the incubator  from the backup roo who is now the main roo.  :nervous: Wish me good fetility (well not me but the girls and boys in their coop,lol) and good hatching vibes!

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

Did those eggs arrive yet?  Good luck hatching them.  This weekends hatch produced 12/16 EO's, 15/17 Spitz and 2/4 porcelains.  Spitz eggs are spoken for this week.

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

Last hatch went OK, the temperature was turned up to 104 for a couple of hours about half way through hatch on the Roll-X and I think because of that I only had 50% hatch rate on the eggs in there.  The porcelains were in the hova and I had 6/8 hatch from them. 
Since my EO's are out on pasture I hadn't hatched a single chick with a club foot.

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

I have had very healthy EOs, chickens in general, too this year gubi. Mine did not get out to pasture until recently but I think hard culling over the past few years is starting to pay off, perhaps that is helping you out as well?

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

Our eggs arrived with not one broken or even cracked, Thank you FRF for the excellent packing job and doing the pick up and sending  for for me. Gubi I just candled the eggs and I can't believe my Eyes!! 16/16 Spitz eggs are fertile and 18/20 Porcelain  eggs are fertile. Who knows the other two Porcelain eggs might even have been fertile, and just not developed to a point. Some eggs have  wonky airsacks from the trip and I believe have stopped developing but I won't be removing them until I am 100% sure :-) I am so excited about this and still can't believe that two people I have never even met went out of their way to do this for me. You guys are truly Awesome!! :happycrowd" I will keep you in the know of what's going on with their development.
