    I am setting 18 eggs today. Im doing 12 Rhode island reds and six mixed eggs. (the rooster was a rhode island red). My original plan was to set on st patty's day, but a fox got our rooster so i had to speed things up a bit. I guess they will almost be easter babies! So who's with me?

    Marty1876 Hi Everyone!

    I sat quail eggs. They will be ready before yours though. If you wait and sit eggs tomarrow, they'll be part of Mahonys Easter Hatch Along, if you sign up.

    So I only ended up setting 17 eggs. Today is day 6..I candled and I am very disappointed [​IMG]! i have 7 of my rhode island that look clear (im leaving them a few more days just to be sure) and I had to toss 1 because it looked clear and had a crack.
