    A WHOLE batch? That's got to be a pain, I think the eggs were rotten because the chickens haven't been mating lately much. I don't know how to put up a picture, haha.[​IMG]

    there's an upload button at the top of the BYC page, click it and follow the instructions. When you're done uploading, copy the line of text that starts with [ img ] and paste that in a reply to the topic.

    (yeah, whole batch. Temperature spike killed em. >:-( )

    I think mine were either way too hot at one point or the fertility rate wasn't high.

    Sorry about a less than satisfying hatch. Time to get some more eggs. You know what they say about falling off a horse!
