    Our chickens were all massacred by a mink last week, so my son took all the Un-refrigerated eggs and started the incubator. I noticed yesterday the temp was a little low when candling them, around 92*. There seems to maybe be growth, but it's hard to tell with brown eggs. Could they be slow growing?

    These were our egg chickens, New Hampshire reds. The meat chicks just got here and are doing great! Turkeys are in the awkward teenage stage, and the ducks and geese are laying like crazy!
