    By my figures, if you set them today they should hatch Christmas Eve!! So you better get to poking those girls or something to get them to lay early! But it wouldn't be so bad if they hatched when you were gone, can't mess with them that way! Just set up your video camera so you can watch it later!! [​IMG]
     
  4. Hopefully! Or possibly the day after. I have a batch of Marans coming, and a batch of BBS orps.

    I've got BBS orps due on the 22nd. I also threw a couple of my BSLs in there as well, to see if they are fertile.

    Hey shelly, I never thought the ones I put in the other day should hatch the same day as yours, I waited a week and started collecting and yes, I will be hatching Christmas.
