    Just bought 22 black/blue/splash marans eggs from a breeder in OK. I got a message from the post office they have arrived. Anyone else setting eggs this weekend? If so, what kind? How many?

    Eggs have settled over night (shipped eggs). Incubator temps are regulated. I will be adding eggs this morning.

    I picked up some eggs from a local chicken farm last night and have them in my incubator.

    1 Maran
    2 Buff Orps
    4 Sex Link
    5 Barred Rock

    First time incubating! Wish us luck!
