    IN!!!!

    I was thinking Australorps, but mine were not all black, they had some white in the chests. And, that one is taken by Pig anyway.

    I am going to lay my bet down on Sumatra's

    Sounds like it's all action, wish I was there to enjoy the megabator eggsperience!

    I'm going to say Black Sexlinks, but it's early and I haven't had my coffee yet so that may change after another cup or two.

    Happy Fathers Day!

    It is ONLY day 20!!! so LOTS of time.

    my current hatch happened over 3 days, legbars early, New hampshires on time, Marans (huge eggs) a day late and 12+ hours after pipping. Really big eggs seem to hatch on day 21 or later. Marans are known to be "late" hatchers.

    Slightly surprised the banties and seramas have not made an appearance yet.
