    So my jubilee orpington and crested cream legbar hatching eggs got mixed up with my mixed flock eggs while I was out of town working, and got put in the fridge for six days while the mix got put in the incubator. When I got home and realized what had happened I sat out the orpington and legbar eggs overnight aND put them in the incubator 4 days after the mixed were set in. Now 4 days later (8 days for mixed] I candles the eggs and all 4 dozen are developing nicely..question is what to do with two dozen eggs with a 4 day later hatch date from the other two dozen?

    Greetings from Kansas, 4cchicken, and [​IMG]! Happy you joined our community! I'm with CTKen - posting in the link provided will give you the best chance for advice - I am a hatching novice myself and have no advice to offer. But I wish you a successful hatch and thank you for joining BYC! [​IMG]
