My eggs from gubi :)

:excited: 14/16 Spitz eggs are growing and 12/19 of the Porcelain Booted Bantam's are growing. The fertility was fantastic on both breeds and now the ones that were not quitters looks great. I was so surprised to see development start on the ones that have wonky airsacks, I suspected that they simply would not develop but I am very happy to be wrong. That was a good  lesson not to toss out eggs from any shipped eggs you may receive until you are 100% sure. I will keep you posted with their development.  :thumbsup:

Re: My eggs from gubi :)

That's fantastic IG :jumping: :jumping: :jumping: 

I was so surprised this year with some eggs I had shipped of Coronation Sussex, the one air sac was all over the place but it developed and hatched.  Can't wait for some :pics: when they hatch!! =D

Re: My eggs from gubi :)

That's awesome.  Paula must have done a fantastic job packaging those eggs for you!  My incubators are shut down for the season but one of my porcelain girls is currently sitting on a few Silkie and a few of her own eggs here.

Re: My eggs from gubi :)

Day 21 is tomorrow, all 26 eggs made it to lockdown   :nervous:  It will be very interesting to see how many Spitz  and Porcelain Booted Bantams will hatch. Debbie and I are making cards tomorrow I bet we make a hundred trips out to the incubation room :thumbsup:

Re: My eggs from gubi :)

Well I am sad to say gubi, my hatch was a disaster :sad: 

Your eggs were fertile except for 3, they developed looked great, put them in lockdown and only 3 EO's hatched and 1 Spitz with assistance.  The Spitz did not make it and I have 1 EO with wonky legs.  I will NEVER :stomp:!!!!! do a full hatch in my Hova again.  They seemed to have died around the day 17-19 day mark judging by how much clear area there was when I candled them.  I felt physically sick :sick:  Either temp or humidity was not right :huh:

I have started eggs this year in the Hova if the Brinsea is full, then once the Brinsea is empty I would transfer them and finish them off in there.

So now I have eggs from Monika and a dozen test eggs from my new fella from Claire in the Brinsea, this is my final hatch.  They look pretty good right now so I am keeping fingers crossed XX I get a decent hatch.

Re: My eggs from gubi :)

Hmmm... my hatching result are crappy this year, too. The Tuesday hatch wound up with just  25 chicks out of 60 eggs. I pulled 6 clears on day 10, and about six more non developers on day 18. I followed Tony's recommendation to try a dry hatch, ran no water 'til day 19, the humidity avgd 30-32%, and the aircells were great. I don't know... I can sure kill some chicks though. :( Put the same eggs under a broody and she hatches every thing!. But my two of my broody hatches have been decimated by a fox. I can't win.

I set 78 more EOs today, this will be the last hatch for me this year. Sure hope it does better than the last. :oops:

Re: My eggs from gubi :)

That's too bad MD and that is maddening with the fox!!   I have talked to a few people this year and they have said the same thing with having crappy hatches.  I have been running the incubators non-stop since end of Feb. and literally only have about 30-40 chicks to show for it and only 14 of those were EO's :sad:

Sorry Monika.........post hijack!! :chairhide:

Re: My eggs from gubi :)

That sucks guys, lets hope Monika has good luck like I did this year.  I have had one of my best years hatching.  unfortunaly my EO's slowed right down with egg laying when I seperated them when spring finally arrived so I don't have as many EO chicks as I wanted either.

Re: My eggs from gubi :)

No worries about any hijacking XOX  My EO roo has turned out to be a bit of a jerk and with his too many points on his comb and his 'ify' fertility,  I am looking to replace him  :banginghead: I am hoping one of this years cockerels will be a good replacement,  time will tell. I also have set so many eggs and only ended up with about 30 or so boys and 19 girls. 12 were promised to Debbie and 2 were presold  so lets hope for lots of girls from FRFs eggs.

Also I am a new mama to 5 Porcelain Booted Bantams from your eggs gubi,  more are pipping   :thumbsup: and 6 Spitz also more pipping. I can't believe how great this hatch is going. Stay tuned  =D

Re: My eggs from gubi :)

Final count is  ...... drum roll  ...... 7 beautiful Porcelain Booted Bantams and 9 Spitz  :excited: I do have a couple of the Spitz in leg braces due to splayed legs, and yes I did the nono and had helped them out of their shell, but I know that  Debbie will not be breeding them and if it helps I thought it was worth a try. The eggs that did not hatch were mostly the ones with the wonky air sacks so I know that shipping was a major factor. Debbie is in Vegas for a few days, I can't wait to see her face when she comes to pick up her new babies. I will get some pictures posted asap. gubi how do I get payment to you? Thank  you again for making this possible.  :happycrowd"
