hatching started, yippee

Post by samscentials on Sun Aug 31, 2008 9:26 pm

1 of my eggs has a tiny hole and 1 has a v shaped crack, so so soooo excited looks like things are getting under way.
after all the little problems these eggs have gone through and all the stresses they have given me looks like at least some success is on the way. happydance2

hi all,
yes these are the eggs being turned manually by a first timer,
yes these are the eggs that went awol in the post.
yes these are the eggs that had some go bad and stinky.
and i thought they were due today as i didn't let them settle for the full 24h as they were late arriving but may have counted wrong ?
and yes these are the eggs that are likely to turn me grey through worry,lol
no further progress yet except i heard a little cheep and nearly cried,lol.
andoy i would have taken your good advice to save the stress but i have a stuborn streak and kids pestering for success. you may have been right, afterall they are not out and in the brooder yet but fingers crossed.

to be perfectly honest i haven't a clue but one is marked 'butler' and one has either a 'w' or an 'm' so my next question would be what happens if some eggs aren't ready to hatch but the babies are ready to be taken out, do i do it quick as i can and hope or do i leave the chicks in longer than 24 hours?
i will make sure next time they are all the same.

the 6 pale chicks have just been joined by a tiny dark one, hope he'll be ok the others seem to be having fun jumping all over him.
i was thinking the only thing i need to figure out later on would be the sex but i think it might finding out what they are might proove harder,lol

actually Bobwhites can take as long as 23 days.

So Once all you're Japs are finished hatching, I'd hoink out all the chicks and unhatched Jap eggs (the ones that aren't white) and carry on incubating them for another 5 days.

I'd be interested to see what the M or W marked eggs turn out to be. I wonder if they are Mexican Speckled or White Bobwhites Rolling Eyes
