    Here it goes!
    I had a clutch of BCMs hatch on August 24th 2015. My first BCMs, the eggs were mail ordered.
    I kept one pullet and one rooster.
    The pullet/hen started laying 2 months ago and all the eggs I checked are fertile!
    (The Rooster is doing one heck of a job with my flock!)
    Her eggs are still on the small side, 50g/1.75oz!

    Now!!!! My best broody just decided to do her thing and I would love to put some BCM eggs under her!
    Are the eggs still too small for a successful attempt?
