    I think 2 are clear
    1 I thought might be a quitter has pipped - so glad I didn't toss! Since I wasn't positive, I waited...YEA!!!![​IMG]

    Total pipped so far - 11:clap
    Total hatched - 1[​IMG]

    YEA!!!![​IMG][​IMG]

    There are 8 faverolles from pasifinofarm - all 8 developed!

    There are 14 Welsummer from AussieSharon - couldn't see in 2 they were so dark, but the others all developed - so possibly 100% development here too.

    3 mutts from my pen - 2 were clear, which I couldn't believe since we "were" well stocked with roosters - all except 2 have gone into Chicken Pot Pies.... 1 developed - should be interesting to see what develops! It is a mixed up mess. It appears to be a bantam faverolle mixed with something (maybe - could be pure ) ...the roos were either a splash showgirl or a black ameraucana![​IMG]

    Quote:Yes - Welsummers from Virginia to NC and the Faverolles from Texas to NC!!!

    Now if they all hatch, I'll be thrilled! I really couldn't see in anything when I tried candling a few the 2nd week. The 1st week, I took them in a
    REALLY dark closet & could make out the blood vessels pretty well & even saw some movement.

    14 are out - I think 2 more are pipped!

    5 faverolles - 1 on the way
    9 welsummers - 1 on the way


    I finally helped the one that pipped 1st - "she" is doing pretty well - some shell stuck to her head - if she can't get it off, I'll dampen it when she's up and around really well.

    11 more to go!
