Yep, they hate me. I'm getting less fond of them at this point too. I get a big old box of eggs and the ones that really hate me, just plain refuse to start developing at all. That's about 90%. Then I get a few to grow. I think they are the dumb ones who didn't get the memo not to develope at all. So they start to develop and go into hatch mode. They poke a big old hole in their shell to have a good look outside. They sit there looking outside for 12-24 hours. Can't decide if they want to come out to this cold cruel world. Remember, these are the dumb ones, so they sit there trying to decide weather to come out or not and they get all dried up. So me being they nice person that I am, can't stand to let them die, so I help them out, get their wings unglued from their heads and hope they survive. Now it dawns on them they they hate me so they flop around and can't get their footings and worry me to death. All the while, Maran's, Buff orps, barred rocks or whatever else I'm hatching at the time. seem to like me, pop out of their shells like little jumping beans and run around like little crazies. All happy with the world. So I'm sure that blue Orpingtons hate me. This is my third attempt and still those blue get me down.
