Here is an update for this season’s egg development:
Enumeration techniques have given us a total of 14,781 eggs in 4 heath trays at the Kiwanis hatchery that are in the process of hatching. At Chip’s cap trough we have 5,595 eggs that were transferred to cassettes yesterday that are about 10 days behind the ones at the Kiwanis hatchery, giving us a total of 20,376 eggs. All eggs are looking healthy and developing nicely (see attached photo). In about 6 weeks time we will be ponding them and will set up a schedule for feeding to all those interested.
