    Well we lost many eggs due to three seperate power outages during these last string on storms [​IMG] Six of which were very nice black copper marans..On the plus side of that I got a pullet and a cockeral and the cockeral came from a super nice extremely dark egg so he should make a good breeder..Anyway I had three EE's in there as well and on day 24 I was going to pitch them and when I picked it up I heard peeping in one of them so I quickly put them all back in..Well believe it or not this morning on day 25 1/2 one of those EE's hatched [​IMG] Talk about being late,,LOL

    I had the same thing! I did have some power outages but they were really short, could that have extended the hatching out an extra 4 days?
