With the Brower it looks like you lay them flat. I need to finish reading the hatching 101.

Absolutely. Probably the best candling light you can get is the light on your smartphone.

A. The hen that laid the egg and was just coming out.
B. Another hen laid it and she was just going in to lay her egg but I came in and she jumped out for breakfast.
Thoughts anyone? idunno.gif


only way to tell is use a trap nest.  One that locks the hen in till you release her.  simple to build but you can get trap nest doors for the front of the nest box.

You grow mealworms in Bran.  and feed them Carrots and apples food and water.  There are a bunch of instruction videos on YouTube.

 

I have been considering growing Poenix worms though for compost.   They prefer the nastier bits and can digest fat.  Their adults are soldier fly.  The larva crawl out the bin to find a place to pupate.  Thats when you feed em to the chickens.  And they dont carry Marecks.
