    I am on day 19 of my incubation on my 42 black copper marans eggs. These are from my girls and I was really excited about the colors of the eggs. I had some difficulty trying to candle them. Most looked really good so I didnt want to toss good eggs and none had any odor [​IMG] So I put all of them into lockdown. I have very little hope for them because my last hatch had really bad success [​IMG] Four babies out of 24 eggs. Three chicks died in their shells. Wish me luck on these guys!!!

    Wishing you all the best. I have some BCMS on order. Haven't gotten them yet and I'm already nervous.
