    The test eggs that I put in the incubator have hatched! 3 out of 3, plus the ones under one of my Splash Cochin are hatching. So for she has 4 that I can see. These are Brahma and Brahma/Cochin mix with 1 that is a Brahma/Speckled Sussex mix. I haven't put the Dark Brahmas in the other pen yet, but hope to this month then I can sell some. I'll try to get some pictures soon.

    I forgot what part of Ga you're in, N or S? One day I might like to have a Dark Brahma hen in my flock.

    I'm in Perry, about 30 miles south of Macon. Splash ended up with 6 chicks, so 9 out of 10 hatched. I hope to get pictures tomorrow as its way to windy and cold, the chicks are staying under Mom.
