Adorable! Those look pied to me. What colors are the parents?

Japanese, OEG, Sebright, Brahmn, d'Uccle, and EE bantams; and RIR, BR, and EEs, Golden Penciled Hamburg, EEs, Anconas, Bielefelders, Wheaten Marans, Speckled Sussex, and a surprise variety of bantams with breeds tbd!

 

16 guineas and 2 turkeys to round out the flock

 

Another victim of poultry math. Aiming for a "designer" flock and egg basket :)

Does the egg still feel very warm when you hold it? 

Sometimes I have "felt" movement in my hand on the final eggs. 

I've also noticed, and its nothing "scientific", but DIS eggs seem to roll easily, like when barely touched with your finger, or when bumped by another chick.  Ones with chicks still living inside will roll a little, but kinda like a weeble (showing my old age), they seem to go right back to the spot they were sitting on.  I hope that makes sense. 

That's interesting! I will have to try gently rolling a few eggs next week during my hatch!
We have Blue, Black & Splash Copper Marans, Calico/Mille Fleur and Self Blue Bantam Cochins, LF Cochins, and a laying flock of various heritage breeds, EE's, production breeds, mutts and more! We also have Quarter Horses, a pony and rescued dogs and cats. I usually have an incubator or 2 running too!

Hey not even 1 of my Ameracaunas have pipped yet. Is it ok for me to candle them to check for an internal pip?

I think our light is not working because I couldn't see anything. I did discover the tiniest of pips so I wrapped it up and have let them alone. The last egg that I thought was ameracauna hatched. It's not. It was from the first batch which means 9 out of 10 hatched. That means the 2 I think it was that weren't fertile and the one with the blood ring were ameracaunas. Their are 4 left out of seven. Hopefully these hatch cause they are the only Ameracaunas I got.. hmm.png

Are they true Ameraucanas?

They did not cooperate enough to get any really good photos, but these turned out okay.
