    I am a bit late in doing the first candling. I just kept the humidity and Temp right and left them alone. No odors so I kept forgetting to candle.

    These eggs are due Dec 10th. There were 6 eggs from my BCLB Dutch hen, 12 shipped silkie eggs, 6 shipped MF d'Uccle eggs, and 3 shipped Barred OEGB eggs.

    Seems Screech, dutch rooster, wasn't doing his job at all. All 6 of Cream's eggs(Dutch) are infertile. USPS did a job on the other eggs. I am down to 6 silkie eggs, 3 of those are questionable, and 3 of the others with one of those questionable as well. That seller didn't mark eggs so I don't know what is from OEGB and what is d'Uccle. Most of the tossed shipped eggs started, but with so much damage they died very early on.

    Oh well, maybe a couple will hatch. Any that hatch will be some pricey babies. [​IMG]
