    Day 23 of 9 BLRW's and 1 wheaten maran. So guess which hatched . . . the Wheaten Maran and worse yet, I think it's a roo judging by its wing color. Such fun! No pips on the blrw's. Should I keep hoping???? Anyone wanna trade a wheaten roo for a blrw pullet?? I can't keep roos!!! [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear that. Did you have any temp fluctuations that you know of that may have delayed the hatch? If it were me, and I'm not saying this is the right thing to do, I would take an egg out really quickly and candle it for movement. I'm like that though, impatient, LOL. Wishing you luck!!
