    Could somebody be messing with you? Do you have any other cages in other cages?

    You just gave me a great idea to mess with my wife. Wait til she sees that her prize hen laid 8 eggs tomorrow. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    No joke. I even checked my bator to make sure the kids weren't messing with it. [​IMG]

    I could have sworn that I read somewhere that it takes 34 hours for an egg to form. I am baffled, but in a good way.

    I caught my supposed roo laying an egg today, so I pulled the 5 out of the bator from my other girls. They've been in for a week, so I opened them one at a time, just in case. Turns out NONE of them are fertile.

    I swear, every egg I've opened for the last week had a big, fat bullseye. But apparently I'm hallucinating, because none of them were developing in the bator.

    So the mystery is solved. I have 3 girls, no roos. [​IMG]

    Go ahead and laugh. [​IMG]

    I'm glad you solved the mystery. If it sounds to good to be true it probably is.

    Oh no!! And I just yesterday sold my extra boys!! [​IMG] I do have a few dark tibetans, and I think there are at least 2 males in them (out of 6 birds). I also have an extra tuxedo male if you are interested. I know you are in KY, but I'm not sure where Evansville is. I'm in Columbia, so if you are close, you can come by and check out my gang. Just let me know [​IMG] Or you could always get some eggs, but that takes longer [​IMG]
