    oh hooray... thats a good hatch rate! These are my first eggs I've ever bought. I'm dying for some really nice buffs and whites. I've decided to get rid of my blacks and just do buff and white. I would like to get a rooster of each color. Who ever says they WANT roosters from a hatch?! LOL

    Hooray! I put them under my broody this morning and she took them all. I have a second broody who is trying to steal them but has failed.

    She hasn't moved since this morning [​IMG]

    Yesterday, a large dog managed to 'shred' the chicken wire around my coops run... and I mean SHREDD. It didn't dig under (chickenwire was buried there too) it didn't manage to pull the nails and spikes out of the trim holding the wire on... it just shredded it into thin wire strings everywhere. I was shocked! [​IMG]

    I was lucky enough to catch him in the act, but he was trying to get into the coop at the time I came out. He was too large to fit in the 12"x12" hole the chickens come out through though. I checked everyone, everyone was safe and sound. My broodies did NOT leave the nest through any of this. Yet, I know they were stressed. We're going to find out just how stressed soon I guess.

    We rewired the run and moved the coop out by the orchard and grape vine to give them more cover while they are out, rather then center in the yard. That gives me a little peace of mind.

    So lets cross out fingers they don't give up on these eggs and make it through to the hatch I'm so excited about!!! This is going to be the luckiest hatch I have yet if they make it?!!?

    Everyone is still sitting! My broodies are still broody and sharing the eggs. (They are actually really good at sharing, and they'll bot hatch and mama together!)

    I candled the eggs today... I had development and veining in 6 of the 8. 4 white and both buffs!!! Only 2 candled clear, and both I cracked out to see one was scrambled yolk, while the other was non-fertile.

    I am so thrilled.... if only 2 hatch, it will be worth it still!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]
