Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

Gubi and  Paula, I sincerely hope you'll accept my apology for not posting that the hatching eggs arrived safely.  :oops:    Thank you both, I truly appreciate your combined efforts to get the Spitz eggs to me.   Can't wait for the hatch, they're in lock down

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

No problem Debbie and Monika I got a nice visit with Paula out of it.

glad to hear that Debbie is excited about the spitz.  I thought it was not 3 weeks yet.  But maybe you guys had perfected a way to grow them faster so you don't need to wait as long.

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

Incubators are full again thanks to Island Girl and her Porcelain Booted Bantams and Eo and Spitz here at home!  All eggs arrived save but a few have strange looking airsacks from shipping and I'm hoping for a great hatch to get a nice rooster or two out of the batch.  We had lost our last PBB cockerel this spring to a raccoon just as I had completed a breeding pen for them!

I have for local pickup red cuckoo basque eggs and Silver Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben eggs.  I have collected 12 EO eggs in the last 3 days and 5 Spitz eggs.  fertility and hatchability have been great on the EO's this year.  The Spitz my rooster went into a molt and one week worth of eggs 4-5 weeks ago were all blank.  I had added a cockerel to the breeding pen but fertility was great again 3-4 weeks ago which was even before that!

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

That's great that the incubators are full gubi, have you candled the PBB eggs since you set Them? I can usually tell fertility after three or four days, they are relatively easy to candle. I hope your new breeding pen will be full of PBB this summer. Happy hatching to you. I am as excited as you are I think.

Thanks for sharing your pictures, I love seeing everyone's Eo's.

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

We have LIFE!!!  :jumping:

I did a quick look tonight and I think there is at least 4 or 5 growing.  The freshest eggs that you had marked 30 and put in between the egg cartons traveled the best I think.  I just did a quick candeling while they were sitting in the turner.  Not sure I want to take them out and twirl them around like I usually do!  Today I was even able to hatch my first 3 silkies!  Until this hatch only one had made it out of the egg only to die right beside the empty shell!  I'm also hatching more EO's Spitz, EE's and one Welsummer.

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

I did another quick scan over with the flashlight on the PBB eggs and I counted at least 9 growing!!!  I also checked the Spitz they were 3 clear 2 blood rings out of 27 eggs, rest were are growing.  I haven't attempted the EO's yet I would need new batteries in the old flashlight first or just wait a few more days!

I have collected 19 EO eggs so far for local pickup

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

Fingers crossed for a good hatch!

When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)

Pens are currently filled with Red Cuckoo (Marraduna) and Red Basque (Gorria) breeders, Spitz, and Seramas.

Re: EO, Spitz and porcelain hatching eggs

6 hatched out of the batch,  a couple needed some assistance as they were getting stuck trying to get out.
