Hatching Time!

Yesterday hatching began. I had set 3 dozen eggs and we had 20 chicks hatch. Out of the 20 we had 18 make it. I love this activity. My roo is a Blue Splash Wyandotte and the hens are Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpingtins, Silver Laced Wyandottes, Blue Splash Wyandottes, Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, Blue Splash Wyandottes and Ameracaunas. So, these chicks will be a colorful bunch. Right now out of 15 laying hens we are getting 9-12 eggs per day.

  1. I am really surprised at the number of eggs. I don’t have a light out there right now. For a couple of months we were really low on the egg numbers, but for whatever reason they got busy.
