My first Hatch EVER!Well..first 2 hatches..that were 8 days apart because I couldn't resist sticking some more eggs in when my greenish egg layer started laying eggs again. I used my brand new GQF Hova Bator Genesis 1588 Incubator and Automatic Turner. Let's see what we can make.
First Incubation3 Precious Silkie eggs from Eevee (RIP!) - and a bunch from my easter eggers, and marans - and a few from my other hybrid layers - ready for lockdown!
The BrooderMy first batch of chicks. 13/23 hatched - Hatched 2 days early - so temp must have been too high..10 chicks were fully developed in shell - one internal pip..others must have died just before. I suspect the humidity change from 55 to 65% was too much.
