Okay... I decided to try hatching eggs. It was just one of those out of the blue things. Lets just say.. Things may have gotten out of hand one of my chickens had gather quite a collection of eggs. She had been sitting on them for awhile and I don't know what eggs were laid when.. I just know a that a little over half had dark masses in them. I put them in an incubator and since I don't know how far along some of the eggs are I don't know what to do! I want to at least hatch a few of them. I would feel a little accomplished if I could get a few of them to hatch. There was an egg in there with a dark line going all around the egg... what is that? How long should I leave the eggs in there? She started collecting them... March 21st I do believe. I didn't mean for her to get so many eggs. She only started with 6 and ended up with.....more than that. Help. Help the first time egg hatcher! Please. >.< Ugh.
