    I have these 2 white hens that don't like each other. I'm
    not sure what the problem is. Maybe they are getting ready
    to lay eggs and are just getting moody. [​IMG]

    Maybe they just need to go for a ride in the car and have a good talking to. No spanking though

    Ok, so what you are telling me then is we are setting the wrong eggs? We should be able to tell which are which? What are we looking for PC? Do we candle them before we put them in and it will have a little B or G on the inside???? Please inform me... I am getting sick of hatching oegb boys.....
