Day 4 Observations
I'm still pretty disappointed. Still not seeing any movement in the Andalusian eggs. They're white. I should see something by now. Still waiting for day 7 to make a call.
The silkie eggs are doing fantastic! No problems with them thus far. Like the Andalusian eggs, I set them in various places around the bator and they're all doing well. Some are actually next to the so far failing white eggs.
Jazzy, my 4 year old BA is having some fertility issues from what I can see so far. She has very distinct eggs. About half of them are showing development. It could just be an age issue since I'm seeing the same thing in her brood mates, Sora and Rhodey. No problems from Henpool or Marble's eggs. I'm not sure about Oddity. I haven't found any of her white eggs, so I don't know if her pigment problem sorted itself out or if she's just not laying. She's in the boxes a lot, so I'm not sure.
More problems from Blizzard's pen. Most of the eggs from that pen seem to be clear. The larger eggs from that pen are developing, so maybe he just likes his hen and my Buckeye hens. Some of the Buff Orps have dirt on their backs from him, but I don't if they're the ones that have been laying the smaller eggs. I may end up taking some of his girls and giving them to Oddball or starting a new pen with them. Time will tell.
More updates on this tomorrow night! Stay tuned for Day 5
