Our second hatch of 2017 resulted in Easter Egger, Oliver Egger, White Leghorn, and Delaware chicks.
Almost a month ago we set eggs in the incubator for the first time in 2014. I was a little unsure about the fertility of many of the eggs when I set them in the incubator. Seven of them ended up being clear, so I took them out on day 7. Days 21 & 22 we had 16 precious Easter Egger chicks hatch. Woo hoo!
We’ve successfully made it through our 4th round of incubating chicken eggs! It continues to be an exciting experience. I get very impatient by day 20. I anxiously wait to see who hatches, then get nervous after some hatch & wonder why others aren’t hatching. I’m then excited when another few hatch. The truth is, though, each batch we’ve had at least one chick pip
