    Decided to make an attempt at hatching our bbs orp's eggs. There are some blue/buff orp eggs in there as well. I set 36 eggs (we have a lot of eggs lol) candled at day 7 and wasn't sure about some but let them go. Candled again tonight at day 14, 11 obvious not fertile/never got past day 1 or 2. The rest look great. One I even was able to very clearly see legs move. I was so amazed at seeing those little legs go, it reminded me of ultrasounds of my own babies lol.
