Nice one Horris its a result :clapper:. just had my first one out tonight and another in pip in the Incubator, the other two hopefully should pip in the next couple of days, the pair are now down on the second clutch....

If I was you without being too greedy I would double them up if you have a Incubator or foster birds! pull the first clutch after a few days of Natural and get her to recycle giving you two clutch's in the one season! having said that some Harris's naturally doyble clutch weather pulled or not,,,,

Give me a sec and I'l get some pic's up of the one just out

Yes mate two out now and one now in Pip and in the Hatcher :thumbs:. Just had a Goshawk down and looking rough in the aviary, she missed a egg a couple of days ago but is still standing for semen so I feared the worst that she had gone egg bound...

she was pushing as if she was either constipated or perhaps a egg stuck but either was getting more and more stressed as it went on, I took the decision to syringe some Liquid Parafin into her and felt the Lump inside her and milked it out! this is what finally came out which must have crippled her! I have had this before which is either a Calcium Ball or just seriousley bocked up...

she looked pretty releived to get that out and Hopefully on the mend now but to be Honest I reckon it could have killed her...

Got the three out Horris! there was four but I made a arse when I placed the tray of eggs back in the Grumbach, I caught a egg on the turning arm and cracked it, I gave it a whirl but it stopped mate :(....

This is the three out :thumbs:...

It could have been better mate but I'm pleased as she is down on 4 again :thumbs:....

This is Basically what I have left egg wise, I have one female still laying and the Pair yet to recycle with the Goshawks, the Blue eggs are Goshawks the brown Pere's! the others Pere's are in the hatcher.....
