It is a new year and almost a year since my last post. Not much has changed. I will putting some eggs in the incubator soon. I have eaten, cooked and baked with a few checking each egg for fertility. The fertility is increasing since I set up some of the breeding pens. I'll have a limited amount of eggs that I can ship this month (March 2017). In April I should have more to ship. I'm shipping on Mon., Tues., Wed. I don't want to take the chance of eggs getting stuck in a facility over a weekend. I just finished setting up the last of the breeding pens. I want the best males with the best females for thr best chicks. I recently cleaned out the bachelor pens and they have converted back to breeding pens. I have been letting the females clean out that are in these pens but want to give them a little time to become fertile again with their males. I hope I will get some good people who will agree to be testers. I will mark the eggs according to which breeding coop they are from and hopefully will get some feedback on how each hatch is. That's this year's hatching goal.
