    I have 3 eggs under my broody Millie (Millie Fleur D'uccle) 2 for sure are developing not sure on the 3rd its a dark colored egg and the coop isn't super dark for candeling. First time with a broody, so far she is doing great! The chicks could be interesting though as the roo is a bantam of my mil and the hens are all full sized, not even sure who's eggs from her mix of hens, rotfl. Of course I will be out of town from the 10th to the 15th, YIKES! Hope dh can handle it when I am gone, I will be a nervous wreck!

    So I candled tonight and the dark egg seems to be growing although I can't pick out veining. The other 2 have great veining but there is what looks like a blood ring forming on the one. I am praying its just funny looking veining. The veining is still very visible and looks to be growing the same as the other egg.

    In hopes my hatch rate would go up [​IMG] finally got the temp to 100.0 F lets see if it stays there before I put the egglets in from my old bator!!!
