    4 Brabanter eggs-3 look good, 1 clear (ordered on Ebay)
    3 Swedish Flowers-2 blood rings(?) & 1 clear
    3 GL Brahmas- 2 good, 1 questionable
    4 Creme Legbar-2 good(?), 1 br(?), 1 clear

    All still incubating, just in case. Maybe next candling will have better reads...especially on the blue eggs.

    Did my final candling this weekend and about 75% are developing! Not too shabby for eggs shipped across the country. If you account for the extra eggs Jeff sent me it's over 90%, with 2 of the 3 breeds exceeding 100% of the total I actually purchased. I can work with that.....

    Ok I believe that sunday the chicks were due to hatch and did not so how can I check to see if they are good or bad? This is my first time so not sure why they are not hatching.
    We have a brooder hen that has done everything right since we put the eggs under her. Feel bad because they did not hatch.

    Hey Papa Brooder. I wanted to ask you a quick question. The 4 babies (SFH) that I hatched from your eggs are now 4 1/2 almost 5 weeks old. At what age generally with this breed can you really tell the gender? I don't see noticeable differences in the chicks but when do they usually show up?

    Almost to lock down. After 2nd candling I removed almost half of my shipped eggs. I was really looking forward to Swedish flowers, but all bad. Maybe scrambled? All had floating air cells. I even met the eggs sit for about 3 says b4 incubating.
    Only 2 of the Creme legbar eggs look good. All 3 of the FL Brahmas look good. I also ordered some Brabanters from Ebay. Only 2 of 4.
    This was my first experience with shipping eggs so I'm kinda disappointed, but I read hatch rates are lower that way. Oh well. Live & learn

    You should be able to tell within the next few weeks. when in doubt, post pics on the SFH thread and you will get lots of feedback. :)
