    I had a couple dozen of my blue orp eggs in cartons on the kitchen counter. The rush and jumble of seed cups and pot plants and the every day cooking and being tied up with other things I competely forgot about them.

    3 weeks ago today I found them. w00t!

    Look at these babies. Splash magic all over the place at my house. [​IMG]

    The eggs sat in cartons on my kitchen counter where the temps ranged from 55 - 65 degrees daily and even lower at night.

    Don't ever let someone tell you it can't happen. Tell them MissPrissy did it. [​IMG]
