    I have 13 eggs in lockdown on day 19: 5 Russian Orloff pullet eggs, 3 Orloff/EE, and 5 Orloff/Cream Legbar. I think a few of them were late quitters though, but I left them in anyways.

    My first chicken hatch for this year will be barred rocks and blue wheaten Ameraucanas. This is going to be the last year of chicks from 3 old BR hens in with a 2yr old rooster. Really excited about my blue wheaten Ameraucana ladies breeding this year to 2 young completely amazing roosters. The styrobator gets turned on the 26th.
