Or I may see you sooner depending when and if PG wants some eggs sent ;)

It's like you heard me thinking about you and gubi and EO hatching eggs Paula :whistle: I was just thinking I should contact you to figure things out!

I was hoping to set the eggs so the chicks are born before the end of May thus last week of April or first week of May for shipping would be wonderful but let me know what you folks are thinking will work for you.

I have 10 little EOs so far and another 10 or so eggs hatching today, first chick just popped his top!

Re: Well it has started.....

I am good to send you some anytime you are ready.  The rooster that I got from gubi last summer is defiantly doing his job, fertility is good and the girls are laying.

Oh I can't wait for some fuzzy butts at the end of the month, hoping I have a good hatch.  Lock down in is Friday the 27th and hatch day should be the 30th :chickout:

Congrats on you EO babies so far :jumping:

Re: Well it has started.....

Put the eggs in lock down last night, set to hatch Sunday night/Monday morning.  Took one EO egg out, it looked iffy on day 7 so I marked it.  Candled it and there was a blood ring and a crack that I had not noticed on day 7??

Fingers crossed that I have some fuzzy butts soon!! :please:

Re: Well it has started.....

good luck!  I put a test hatch into my Roll X last night  14 Spitz,11 EO, 5 Welsummer 3 silkies and 2 Porcelain booted bantams.  The booted eggs are 10 days since they have been with the booted rooster so we will see if there are fertile and still pure or if they are Spitz cross.  I lost my last PBB rooster over March break (racoon) and the hens just started to lay again on Thursday.  They are housed with the Spitz now as they are closest in size but they look so tiny besides the Spitz rooster.

Re: Well it has started.....

Well as promised here are the fuzzy butt pictures.

5 SFH, 4 Brabanter, 2 EO, 2 Araucana and 1 sweet little silkie!! The ones that did not hatch had fully formed chicks but didn't hatch!!

This is the first time I have used paper towels, man they make it messy quick!!!!

Re: Well it has started.....

Thanks!!!  I have always used shavings, but because they are in my basement for a couple weeks I thought it would be less dust if I used paper towels :huh:

Re: Well it has started.....

:congrats: on the beauties, they look oh so sweet. My first hatch was dismal only one of 8 fertile eggs made it and HE is quite the little man. I knew within 3 days it was a HE. Thick legs, noisy as heck and very needy! This Sunday he was joined by 17 little brothers and sisters. Many more eggs in the new to me Sporstman too. But I won't do a high jack :P

Re: Well it has started.....

Oh :congrats: Monika and you can post hijack anytime.  It's funny how you know the boys sometimes right off the start.

I will be doing some EO only hatches but I am trying to increase my Brabanter flock, plus wanted to do a fertility check on my eggs as well.

Re: Well it has started.....

:jumping:  Congrats on your hatch Paula.  I am glad you are going to increase the Brab population.  =D  I am so pleased with the one I kept.  All of her eggs were fertile and 7 out of 8 hatched although they are crosses cuz I didn't keep a roo.  :stomp:  EO's will probably be on my wish list again, the last two were rehomed last summer to a farm of blissful contentment. :P


urban flock consisting two EOs thx Prairie Chick, one True Blue Ameraucana, and two Welsummers, thx Dan Smith and a gorgeous Easter Egger Hen, thx Flicker Chick. and 2 GLW pullets, 1 GLW cockerel, 1 SLW cockerel, 1 true blue Ameraucana pullet, and 4 EE pullets and 1 Cream Brabanter pullet, Thx to FRF, Anneke, and Fallyn.

Re: Well it has started.....

Thanks all!  HR mine will be put in the outside brooder once the are 2-3 weeks old.  I have used paper towels in place of shavings for bedding this time to hopefully help keep the dust down??

Yes Allan you should have kept a rooster!!:no no: LOL

Dust comes from them, unrolling the new feathers.

My first hatch is pipping tonite, due out this weekend. :thumbsup:
