    I only had one survive this long out of 6 but it is still moving. Will move it to the brooder tonight. Please say a little prayer for the last lone Faverolle. As long as it is ok I don't care if it is male or female. But I really need roo, so that would be nice, but I won't be picky.

    My swap eggs are on day 11 today, so not too much longer on them.

    Good luck on the hatch and I hope you get the rooster. I needed a Dorking rooster to hatch last year and it took me 20 chicks to do it. first 19 where hens. So much for hatching percentages.

    I have added chicks to some that were a few days older with no problem. I think it would be fine. Just keep an eye on them at first to make sure they don't pick on the little one. I moved my one egg to the hatcher today. So keep your fingers crossed.
