    It's day 6 and I went out to check on the eggs my broody is so faithfully sitting on, and thought I'd take just a little sneak peak at them, because I will do my "official" weigh-in check-in and candling tomorrow, on day 7... But I couldn't resist taking a quick look. And I got to see this:



    This little clip is two of the Blue Orpington eggs, and it looks like there is a dance party going on in there! [​IMG]

    I knew that the books all said there would be movement, and that I'd be able to see it, but I really didn't think it would be that cool and that active!! Yay!!

    Anyway, aside from my excitement, I thought it could possibly be useful to someone who might be wondering what to look for.

    I have 2 chicks in one egg they really dance together at this stage. I try and sing to them!
