    OK, so I have decided that I need to get in better shape. A few days before that I loaded the bator (22 of my RIR eggs and 7 Black Copper Marans Eggs that I paid good money for). I was turning the eggs this morning and was candling a few to see if they were veining yet. My arms are kinda sorta jerky and uncoordinated from the exercise. I was candling my darkest BC Marans egg and dropped it. [​IMG] I admit to thinking a few select ugly words.

    Since it was already busted, I opened it up in a bowl and it WAS developing nicely. Such a waste.

    Anyways, there is a good excuse not to excercise! [​IMG]

    I did that when I was trying to get my start on my BLRW flock. Of course it couldn't be one of my mutt eggs I had in...had to be one of the developing BLRW eggs. I said a few choice words!!
