  • It's the eighth day the second batch of eggs have been in the incubator, so it's time to candle them.🔦🥚Good news: The little chicks are forming! Can't wait for this next hatch. 🐣
.
These eggs were from a flock of nine hens and two roosters: 5 Ameraucana hens, an Ameraucana rooster, and 4 Easter Egger hens and a EE rooster. .
Easter Egger is not an actual chicken breed, but is a nickname for a chicken that is a mix of breeds and lays green/blue eggs. .
The previously hatched chicks are all EEs so I'm hoping for some pure Ameraucana in this next hatch. .

  • Hatch day is April 27! .
I currently have only 3 eggs in the incubator.... turned out none of the Cochin eggs I started with these were fertile.🤷‍♀️
.
There are also 8 more of these my Serama hen is acting sitting on. She barely covers them all, she’s so tiny. Those should be hatching May 5-6.

Go to my stories and you can vote for which of the three incubator eggs you think  will hatch first!!

  • #eggcandling So last night we checked these eggs and looks like about half have embryo activity. I marked them with blue crayon to so I wouldn't forget. Hopefully they continue to develop.

  • 🐣 I’ve been playing chirping noises and momma hen clucking sounds for the eggs which makes them extra wiggly- and all three are happy, active, and expected to hatch within the week! When they’re older they’ll go to a little farm in Puyallup to live freely with other happy chickens😢💕
Their names are Vivie, Moo moo, and ______... still need a third name. Any suggestions?

  • Day 7 of incubation of a Serama egg. This one is very active today!.

We are expecting some strong storms tonight/early a.m. hours Sunday. Praying everyone and their homes will not suffer any losses. And also that our power can manage to stay on, so these eggs won’t die! Spring is such a beautiful season, but a rough one for us living for us in “tornado alley”.

  • Candling eggs!
I’ve got hens “laying under” our hen that is setting on a clutch of eggs. That means the other hens get her off her clutch (the group of eggs she’s setting on) in order to lay an egg in the same nesting box 🙄😩 Now that I’ve discovered this, I have marked the eggs I want her to keep and collected the rest. But we’ve got to figure out which ones are good to eat and which ones need to be tossed :-) My Farm Buddies love peeking inside the eggs - we had several with “blood rings” (egg pic 2), which is where embryo development stopped and the blood vessels detach and form a ring around the inside of the egg. The other pic is one of our blue/green eggs! It’s good! :-) I love having chickens ❤️ #farmlife #chickens #fresheggsdaily #eggcandling #chicks #hens #farmbuddies #twins #blessings

  • So wild! Day #14 of chick incubating. I candled last night and threw out 7/17 eggs. Double-checked the remaining 10 and they are all alive. You can see them move! I won't candle any more but will continue to rotate the eggs several times daily until Friday - then it's lockdown time as I wait for hatching. Egg-citing times 🐔🐤. #chickhatching #eggincubating #chickenlove #eggcandling

  • We have life 🐤! Pretty sure some of the eggs in the incubator are not viable but there definitely are a few that are developing. The black blob on the left is the embryo. The pencil marked 'x' is so I know when they have been rotated. #chickenhatching #eggincubating #eggcandling #farmlife #chicks
