I set 31 eggs October 10th for a Halloween Hatch.
I started out with 18 Araucana eggs I bought off EBay from
Georgia 8 Orpington eggs from my flock and 5 Bantam Cochin eggs from my flock.

I candled the eggs when I put them in the incubator and then today at day 14

I candled them to see how they were doing, It looks like 11 Araucana , 7 Orpington and 2 Cochin have some development at 14 days. Just hope they continue to on to hatch.

Not due till Halloween Wednesday! I will candle them this afternoon and then put them in lockdown. I have in the past had some hatch early so never know, still hoping for a Halloween hatch so I can name one after my Grandson who turns 17 on Halloween.

Well it looks like I might have eggs for lockdown 6 Araucana 6 Orpington 1 Cochin
and that is questionable as some are hard to see through the shells.
