    ok this is the first time for hatching my own. we are soooo excited, we have ducks and chickens together and so far so good. i have candeled some and have seen development a couple yokers and some iffy. we are on day 14. right now it is crowded in the egg but can see what i think is the air pocket. the brown eggs i couldnt see anything because of shell color. so we will see if anything comes of that. should i remove the ones i think are yokers or leave a bit longer? no funky smells or anything and shells are fine.

    Why they ever canceled "Men Behaving Badly" I'll never know. I LOVED that show.

    When you post, next to message box it says smilies [show] [hide], choose show and click on smily; if you meant the really fancy ones, google them and cut and paste the code. [​IMG]
