    So out of the 39 I originally set, 3 were not firtile the first time around, my son dropped 1, and 5 quit. The other 30 are going strong, although it looks like 3 may have an air space problem.

    All in all not bad for my first hatch in an LG still air. Can't wait for next friday... Hatching day!!! [​IMG]

    As for my Seabright broody... She started out with her nest in a cinder block under the coop. Last weekend I had too crawl under there and haul her and her 10 eggs out and transfer them to the "Broody Crate" I have set up in the coop. She was not happy. [​IMG] The whole reason for doing it was so that I wouldn't have any bad egg explosions under the coop, because that would be terrible to try to clean out. Anyway, I candled the eggs and 9 out of 10 were alive and kicking. The last one had a crack and bloodring, so I figured she must have bumped it against the cinder block. I went out to check on them this morning and I have a couple of pips!!! [​IMG] What a good mamma. [​IMG]
