    Easter egger - This was from the first egg laid my hen laid. I left all of the eggs outdoors for about 5-6 days hoping that the hen would sit, before I brought them in. Apparently, it was hot enough outside to begin the incubation process because I have only had them under the lamp for about 16 days.

    I never could see through these shells. I was certain they were infertile or that I had killed them. Yesterday, I was able to see veins in one of the newer eggs. I looked at this particular egg yesterday and still couldn't see anything. I'm just amazed :)

    I hatched a couple of batches of eggs for the first time recently (quail and chickens). VERY much fun. :) Congrats.
