after all 0% hatch rates..... we were locking down tonight and as the final candle started...... a peeeeeep! Yep, one of the Marans eggs had internally pipped, then yet another one had internally (we think) pipped. Into the humidity they went. All 11 went in, all were moving.... some kicking and screaming. I'm soooooo excited. This is the one, folks.
This is what went into the bator:
2 BBS English Orps
1 Ameraucana (excuse the spelling)
7 Marans/BMC and BBS
I've put on another pot of coffee and told all the eggs that I've got loads of patients to care for tomorrow..... and they'd better get to it before 0900, and then have some rest until 1900.
OMG, it's happening. It's happening and I'm just about the most excited person in the world.
