    I want to try and hatch some eggs soon. I get 8 eggs a day now so I can have a nice selection to choose from. Is there anything I need to look for in the egg that I choose? Does size or shape make a differance? Some of my eggs are more round than oval, some are smaller than the others, which ones would be the best?

    You will get tons of different opinions on this. However Ive hatch many diff shapes and sizes and have had great hatches. Id make sure that the hens are healthy and nourished and you should be fine. My thing is if it can hatch so be it!
