    You likely have a bantam EE or something similar that is a blue egg laying bantam.

    Ok I really need to actually figure out what day I am setting, because I will be getting serama hatching eggs from a friend and then i will be ordering eggs. since there will probably be shipped eggs in the bunch, I want at least 4-5 chicks out of a dozen that i can fit in my incubator. I would love to have enough to keep a few hens and a cockerel and sell the rest. But i don't know. there will be frizzle eggs in the bunch, I will have to make sure that I ask her to mark the eggs that come from the pen with the frizzle

    Just set my first hatch of duck eggs! Not sure what kind since my SIL ducks are all laying in the same nest box. Guess I'll be surprised!

    Contests have been added!

    Contests:

    1. Best Hatch RateFirst
      Prize: Hatching eggs from @RavynFallen or drawing from @Peep-Chicken
      Second Prize: BYC 2015 Calendar

      participants will need to be setting a minimum of 6 eggs​
      .​
      These can be under broodies or in your incubators. Send @ronott1 a pm letting him know how many you will have cooking. We'll need that info​
      by the 3rd of Jan at the latest
      to be included in the contest. When the hatch is over,​
      you'll take a pic and post it to show us how many​
      you actually hatched.​
      The picture must be of sufficient quality to count all the chicks.​
      In the event of a tie, the one who hatches the most chicks wins.​


    2. First of any poultry fully hatched (local time) on New Year's Day (Picture required to be posted​
      immediately after hatching).
      Prize: TBD
    3. Random post contest 1
      Prize: TBD

      Open to hatch a long members except Hatch a long administrators. A post number has been selected. The first hatch a long member to post on or after the number is the winner! A backup post number has been selected to be awarded if the winner declines the prize.
    4. Longest Distance Hatched Egg:
      In order to enter the contest folks with shipped eggs need to submit their city/state and the egg shipper's city/state (via PM preferred for privacy reasons) to calculate distance. A viable chick produced by the longest distance will win a book of postage stamps to help defray the shipping costs.


    5. Worst Hatch Rate:
      Eggs set vs. eggs hatched. Winner will receive a chicken-themed consolation prize.
      (Not encouraging anyone to try to win this one, but zero hatches sometimes happen....)
