    I started out with 32 mixed breed chicken eggs to see if the roosters were good at there job. At day 10 candled and thru out 10 glowing eggs. At day 18 recandled them and culled out 3 eggs that did not grow. Started to hatch on the 19 day and finished on the 20 day. I got 11 baby chicks from 19 eggs that went to term.
    5 blue polish crossed with Bardrock or golden sex link. 5 Easter egger crossed with black astrolope or bardrock. And 1 Mille Flure x Old english game bird. I am already thinking of my next hatch. I am defintly hooked on all things chicken.
