    Ok today I get home and lily has decided not to set her eggs any longer, so I stuck them under whynnona(shes brooded before) the eggs were a little cool not bad. Candled a couple but couldn't see anything(only day 5) I check under Eileen she has been settin real well, to me the eggs didn't feel that warm but she hasn't been off them( I think its me, I was warm when I was checkin em) 90 outside today. Checked a couple of hers didn't see nothin(will try a different flashlight tomorrow) So am I stuck with 18 total duds or check em in a few more days. Even if I only get a few chicks I'd be happy 1 bunch in D'Anvers and the others mixed surprise from Napa. I want babies!!!!!
