This boy and the 5 girls with him are the ones that I'm hatching from this year. I've only hatched one little group so far and a friend from church wanted them so I let him have them.
These were hatched April 24/25 and went to Brent/Katie Boyd 4/26. Eight total.
I have a broody hen with eggs from same group under her. Due to hatch 5/24 This is one of my older Underwood SC hens. Well, my broody hen decided on day 17 that she didn't want to be a mother and left the nest. I put the eggs in my bator but don't know if anything will hatch or not because I don't really know how many hours she was off the nest before I realized it. I did candle the eggs before putting them in the bator and every one of them looked really good but again, I don't know how cold they got before putting them in there. Our weather has been in the 50's so they may have gotten to cold. Only time will tell. They were due to hatch this coming weekend (5/24/15.) Fingers crossed 5/29/2015 I had 6 ot the 12 eggs hatch after a heck of a bunch of trouble. Incubator went boom, heating light blew out, got new incubator. Oh my, happy for the 6. They will be a week old in a couple of days but pictured below are the ones that hatched. lol Super chicks.
