    My son Collin (18) decided since our 2 little bantam cochin's were broody he would help by placing 2 bantam cochin eggs under each and 1 mystery egg under each (We have 3 standard roos and 29 standard pullets) I am hoping the dark egg is the cuckoo's mixed with the copper as she hangs out with him most of the time but you never know

    Our hatch day is Easter!

    But isn't Easter on April 24th? If you set today, that's day 24, not day 21.

    In any case, good luck with your hatch! I've never had a hen go broody so we just use the 'bator -- your way sounds much more reliable. [​IMG]
