    A few seemed a little small but over all I'm pretty happy with them. I ordered 12 BCM eggs, got 4 extra and the Americana eggs for free.

    It's been a bout 12 hours... is it too soon to candle??? [​IMG] Did I mention I have waiting??? [​IMG]

    You could candle - but you might be a little dissappointed [​IMG]

    I'm gonna mapquest wilton and come hunt your house down and steal the whole incubator!

    The amearacauna eggs are purty! It looks like they go with your decor.

    Mahonri,

    Nope it's a humidaire. I got it for free which is how I had money came from for BCM eggs. I wasn't planning to get them for a year or two but since I didn't have spend any money on a bator.....

    pbjmaker,

    That very old decor will soon be a distant memory ( I can't stand that floor). We are renovating the entire house. It's a 109 year only farm house and in need of some work. So far we've finished the dinning room and living room. Lots of work on the walls and new 3/4" Oak flooring (soon to be through out). We're currently working on the kids room and a spare bed room upstairs. If you could see the finished rooms it would look much better. My wife and I both really love color there won't be a white wall in the place when we're done.

    I want some marans in the worst way. The dark brown eggs are beautiful. [​IMG]

    I finally got downsized to a few breeds and here I am thinking about adding again [​IMG] Maybe we can work out some kind of a trade someday with some marans and blue orpingtons. Good luck on your hatch [​IMG]

    I want some too - I tried hatching some eggs last month and only got one Marans - unfortunately he is a roo. (I love him and his long legs anyway- but he can't lay eggs)
