    Maybe I can pick five and use different color permanent markers to put a dot or something on their leg?

    I use the app called Egg Hatcher. There is a place for notes, it has an extensive list of birds to choose from including regular birds and I never write in eggs. Even the pens that say you can. Less handling the better. I set, no candle until time to drop down to check for dead eggs and thats it.

    No permanent markers. It seeps through and will kill the embryo

    They’re quail eggs I think and I think Kiki auto turns but idk. I don’t think she dry hatches but I could be wrong.

    Kiki usually candles daily :lau

    Everything usually hatches just fine.

    :lau true

    Sounds like a cool app

    I might have to weigh mine

    :lau

    That’s true!

    You can lock threads??

    I think she was meaning about putting it on their legs after hatch?

    Don’t know about the myth or not myth but I think Kiki was talking about putting marker on their legs instead of zip ties? So not on the actual egg but on the chicks after hatch.
