Help! I’m being over run with chicks!
Well, not really.
When I ran the numbers to estimate the number of chicks I would hatch out this season, I estimated between a 50-60% hatch rate – this was based on what I have gotten in previous years using those styrofoam incubators.
Now that I have a cabinet style GQF, that hatch rate has soared! Even with a storm that moved through last week and knocked power out for a couple of hours, I still hatched out 25 of 27 eggs that went into lockdown!
So, now we add 10 more wheaten/blue wheaten, 5 more white, and 10 more F1 and F2 gen OE/EE!
