Candled 3 of the chicken eggs this morn, all three had internally pipped a day early.. we may have chicks by tomorrow or maybe even tonight depending on how quickly they go through the hatch process. In any case, yay


Also, looking up duck incubation time by breed, the ducks may hatch next week, not in 2 weeks.

Of the other chicken eggs whos shells can be seen thru 1 is clear (infertile) and one hasn't grown in about a week (early quitter). They were not bad tho so I left them in the incubator for now, and the rest are growing on track that I can see. Some have shells that cannot be seen through though, so no way to tell with those ones.



The duck eggs you can see movement in each of. The guineas I have not really tried to candle, but when I do with one or two, they seem to be growing normally. The chicken eggs go into lockdown midway through next week and should start hatching out this time next week. Guineas a week afer, ducks another week after.


We leave next Wednesday to go look at some potential properties. We will be gone for the first hatch! But it should be ok. We have someone coming to turn the eggs not in lockdown and to look after the other critters 3+ times a day.


I can't stop watching this video:
Chicken Embryo Development - YouTube


Today is day 14 and the chicks are turning to the hatch position.


Also am super duper excited for baby duckies. Whoo hoo


From phone

Quoting myself to reshare video without taking the time to find it again because I am laaaaaaazy this morn



Day 19 today if I have counted proper, and chicks have internally pipped (can see regular movement as tho breathing, also there is a small moving protrusion in the air sacs when candled very carefully. Still no peeps.


I figured they would hatch a smidge on the early side, the quail usually did. My incubator must run a degree warm or two is the only thing I can figure. That, or I'm setting it a smidge high. Still air incubator with heating element at the top, so the higher off the ground an egg is, the warmer it is. They say to measure 100-101 F sitting right above eggs for a still air. I had the temp probe on top of the chicken eggs since was a nice midway between teeny guineas and giant duckkos. Chicken body temp (and most birds) is about 104F. Maybe I just set it too high, I aimed for to keep the temp reading around 101F above the chickies.



This is exciting. Also, sadly someone bought the property we were going to go look at ( ) but we get to be here for the hatch, so that's cool( ). We will find another property, it will all work out. But I'm not going to lie: I'm pretty disappointed by the setback. I want to get out of this city!


New dog settling in very well. Did I mention we named him Lucky? Lol I can't get over how cliché of a name that is, like naming a collie Lassie or a black and white beagle Snoopy, or maybe even worse: a dog named fifi, rover, or spot. Haha I do think it is cute tho, I'm just amused by the cliché.



Lucky is a very good doggo.



Ohemgosh- I didn't mention Luckko on this thread yet! So we adopted a new dog coming up on a week ago. A street dog from Puerto Rico who had been abused, no less. But he is settling in well. Finally finished introductions yesterday with my terrier who is a smidge standoffish with those outside his pack, and a wee bit jealous, and only the teeniest bit possessive of me (lmao, he is very all of those things. Is what I get for rescuing a half scottie and not neutering him (health reasons, may re look into in the future)). Anyway, they now play togetger and tolerate each other. In time I'm sure it will get better.

Re: mixed species hatch-a-long! (eggs set 5/18 and 5/22)

They have started to "zip" out of their shells. But it is almost 1 am, so I am calling it a night. Baby chickkos will have to wait for the morning.

7 out so far. Will move to brooder tomorrow am. Had to help one hatch, but he seems fine now and it's been several hours since then.
