    are popping out today! My husband is the proverbial rocket scientist...makes lists, writes down data, compares and contrasts....studies and studies...and then there is ME....I threw some eggs from every pen into an incubator to test fertility and never wrote down the date I did it. I did turn them regularly and I AM a chronic candler....but had no idea when they were due to hatch. I thought it was next week. I even turned them yesterday (geesh!) and by nightfall I had babies pipping. As of this morning I have 2 Egyptian Fayoumi's, 2 Delaware's, and 1 cute little Spitzhauben baby in the brooder with 21 Serama chicks.

    Yea, ME!

    Quote:Are you just fond of Delawares? Or just not-so-fond of the Spitz's and the EF's?

    Just curious!
