I have one white leghorn and one brown leghorn, but I think I might have to get rid of the white one. She is getting older and beginning to lay internal eggs. I don't want her to suffer. However, I love getting a mix of egg colors and so I always have some white eggs, brown eggs, tan eggs, and I love my EEs green eggs!

My Hovabator just came in yesterday morning and I set 42 eggs last night at 7 for a test run before the EHAL. These eggs are from my own flock :)
Roosters include: 1 Naked Neck, 1 Barred Rock (these two were culled a week before I started collecting eggs so may not be the fathers), 1 Easter Egger, 1 Silver Sebright/Thai mix and 1 Welsummer/Barred Rock mix (the Welsummer mix is young and has only shown interest in the Faverolle). I'm expecting the EE to be the father of most since he is my dominant roo.
The eggs collected are:
6 Jungle Fowl
6 Blue Marans
4 Black Sumatra
4 Red Ranger
3 Barnyard Mix browns
2 Barnyard Mix whites
2 Silver Grey Dorking
2 Bantam Crevecoeur
1 Olive Egger
What an incredible mix! I can't wait to see the chicks that come out of those eggs!

I think he's a Roo just my opinion though. What do you experts think Roo ?
I would guess roo, but he's still a very handsome little guy all the same. And a survivor too! Its incredible what our little chicks can go through!

Can't wait to see the little guys. 😄
This is my first hatch-a-long too. Am I supposed to do anything besides rotate my eggs and chat?
And post lots of pics too!
