Persistence pays off. Just have to keep the upper hand, and it'll sink in sooner or later. If you don't believe it, just ask my wife...   hide.gif

My 6 RSL's were like that all Fall....molt.  They're finally starting to pick up now.  I've got one that lays a really dark egg; a lot darker, consistantly, than the others. Come Spring, I'll probably gather up several of the dark ones & toss them in the cooker.

I may have to add some "spice" to the flock, but one thing at a time. Gonna keep a few of the barred rocks to add to the laying pen, then I'm going to move into phase 2 of my (top secret) long-term plan, and perhaps then I can consider something a little more colorful.

Humidity is 29% and drying out. It will probably get to 25% at its low and 30% at its high (based on previous tests). The turner is fine. I actually use the timer as a switch because I'm around. Temp is hovering between 99.5 and 100.5 with the fan and light working well. Even if these eggs are fertile, I will have the challenge of this MacGyverbator and whether or not it will work for hatching. With some water I could get it to 60% humidity during tests, but didn't test it all the way to 70%. I will candle on Tuesday or Wednesday and let you know.

Sounds like you will be just fine.
