    I received some eggs in the mail from a local Maran breeder yesterday. Been trying for two days to get the Little Giant still air incubator set just right. Temps have been up and down driving me mad. The breeder sent me 11 mixed from her Black Copper Maran, Black Maran, and Splash Maranhens. These are bred by a Blue Copper Rooster. She also sent 3 Oliver Eggers to fill the voids in the box. I have one Black Copper Maran that I have been saving eggs for the last 2 weeks. I put a total of 25 eggs in the incubator today. Can't wait to see what happens.[​IMG] Scary part is, we are leaving town for the weekend, and won't be back till Sunday night.
