So after a few days i think my Tom may have completed his deed 1ce and now both hens are squatting for him. Lol!
I have 2 egg orders in for the Easter Hatch along and 1 came in today. 2 of 13 eggs busted and egg everywhere! Sigh
Only 3 eggs didn't have to be rinsed and i see no air cells for any of them. Granted they are some beautiful splash and blue marans eggs, but i can still see air cells in mine and they are just as dark. Hoping they are just that fresh and not completely scrambled!
Very pleased with egg color, just hope i can get a pair at the least! Last year i hatched more black copper and my goodness...i get boys!! I was able to add 1 hen last season. Granted I only hatched a very small # because my attempt at separating they stopped laying and i exp. predator issues which I'm sure is why they wouldn't lay..too stressed.
My hens are about 3 years old and i fear if i dont hatch more this year i will lose my beautiful eggs. I love the breed and don't ever want to be without them!
My second batch of eggs are the bantam mille fleur cochins. I will be slipping those under my broody and trading out the eggs shes sitting on now and those will go into the hatcher.
Those eggs are awesome! What breed are they from?
