Only one is using the nest so far and I'm pretty sure that's Pebbles. She was the first to lay and she was checking it or the other day, the first time I found an egg in it. I was actually concerned today that everyone quit on me. I had no eggs today until around noon and I only had 1 then. But by bedtime tonight, there were 3 more in there waiting for me
I plan to set ALL of the eggs. Even if I have to remove my turner and then turn all by hand so that they all fit, that's what I'll be doing. I'm not worried about beign overrun yet. I have the big garage brooder that I can fill. I'm honestly only keeping 2 poults, ones that look like toms to raise up for thanksgiving next year. I figure that they should be good size by November if they hatch in January. The rest I plan to sell.
