Hi, I'm new to BYCI. I've had chickens for just under a year now. It really is an addictive hobby. I especially love the eggs. Now I am trying to incorporate hatchings into my genetics classes. Its really hard getting hatching eggs this time of year. But I managed to get 6 fertile ones from my girls. I'm anxious as Feb 3rd is the supposed hatch date, but not sure if they are as far along as they should be. Most are brown eggs and candling is not clear. I also have some EE eggs that I can't seem to tell if they are fertile or not. So many questions so little time. I have been following the forums for some time, but never joined. Looking forward for all the help and advice from the experienced chicken farmers.
