    I got these eggs late 6 days ago and put them in incubator. since I put them in late I consider them to be day 5 eggs. the eggs to the left had 4 clears and one keeper. the eggs to the right are all good. So after pulling my clears my count will begin. so far 7/7.

    Not a bad sized egg for a beginner. Hope it stays this way, her mom was laid big eggs.

    I know that feeling! Been a while, but yeah, some don't want to be bothered, and some are sweethearts and just talk to you while they sit there.

    Been there done that too..that's actually how I got started incubating. Someone had said, best have a back up incubator, they don't always stick to it. Well this little stinker did all the way, until they pipped. Guess that freaked her out. She flew the coop! I had to take pipped eggs in and hurry and get that incubator warmed up. Got three babies out of the 5. I was hooked!

    Thank you! I am excited about the dark spotted ones, not only are they pretty but they have "blue" feathered birds in them. I believe the greens are frizzles maybe splash ones.

    Yes and they came this morning [​IMG] Finally!! Despite the delay and not being marked as eggs or fragile [​IMG] none were broken. Whew! No rolling air cells, just some saddles.

    This group of 11 are blue/black/splash copper Marans, blue/black/splash Cochins (standards), and Mille Bantam Cochins.

    They will go in the bator today to join the others!
