Re: Would there be interest in hatching chicken eggs?

I'm actually talking about a winter project. I'm doing most of my chicks now too.

I'd be very happy to provide links on all the best and most helpfull sites I found on hatching and raising. I think I have over 100 things saved to favs from all the constant reading, lol.

The thing is, I have to send the freshest eggs. They loose successfull hatching rates fast after 7 day being layed. I may do 2 winners? Eggs are a little scarce with the lack of daylight and the cold right now. If I did 2 winners, I'd have to ship a week apart to ensure the freshest eggs. I can't tell who, but many of my hens have stopped laying for the winter.

Incase you want to do some reading now, has tons in their learning centre!

Also, we have a homestrad forum here on ds. I do a chicken moma chat thread there as well each month. Lots of sharing, chatting, help, advice, just a nice friendly enviroment. It's under green families. Most don't know it's there. Here's a link!
