    One hatched last evening, one during the night, and other just popped out a little while ago. I can see 3 more pips and another was almost out. They look so small compared to the 2 week old ones I've got in the brooder next to them.

    Quote:Thanks all! I now have 4 out and 2 pips that I can see. I had 6 BLRW and 5 Marans in there.

    Jody....I'm a little more hopeful about at least a couple of the SLW. If he decides he has more eggs please let me know.

    Are these Marans eggs from your beautiful flock or from someone else?

    I may have some SLW eggs for you in the future if your looking for them.

    Keep us posted.

    Yes, the Marans are my own eggs. We'll have to keep in touch about the SLW....maybe we can do a swap. I'm anxious for some of my pullets to get old enough to lay. I hope they lay as dark as the hens.
