    I had 2 of every egg almost I opened every other egg. they were all a no go, don't feel bad for me, remember I just hatched out 16 from diff coops, I just wanted my own. It will happen.

    Thank you for your thoughts.

    I was going ask about the penny but I read the other posts, I will try this!
    Beautiful eggs!
    Yay!!! Exciting! Are these the AC eggs?
    Oh no! Are you sure? How do you know? This is what I'm worried about! My cockerel just started mating and I only cracked one egg and it looked fertile to me....:fl
    Oh my goodness! So cute!

    You guys are so good!! Every time I was going to quote something, the answer soon followed! Awesome advice on this thread! I'm getting excited about setting! It finally sank in. I'm just nervous about fertility, pullet eggs, and I'm only getting 1-2 eggs every other day, so I'm worried they will be too old. But all I can do is try and see what happens, right??
