    I am incubating my first batch ever right now, and currently have 25 eggs going.
    One of them is a Black copper Maran egg (a local farmer breeds them) the rest a mixed variety.
    One of the eggs is a giant monster egg, about 3 inches long, and I suspect s a double yolker. Not sure if it will hatch or not, but it is worth a try.
    So anyone else due on that day? If so want to be my hatching buddy? [​IMG]
    Oh and I will try and post some pictures soon of my eggs.

    So here is my final update, i think all of my eggs that were going to hatch have hatched, so here are the results.

    Oh, and I put 2 or 3 mille fleur cochin eggs in at the same time.

    You can tell I have too many eggs going when I forget about some, lol.

    I will. I'll probably candle the middle of next week to see what ones are developing.

    Quote:Ahh I candled my jumbo one today just to see what exactly I was dealing with. Looks like two things are starting to develop at different ends of the eggs.
    I plan on candling all of my eggs though on Wednesday, So they will be eight days old then. I really hope my one special egg hatches since it cost more than the rest.
    We got our eggs from two different farms.
    Since we wanted to see who was more reliable. ( for future reference)
