    I bought 11 eggs thru Ebay 3 weeks ago.....
    Temp was perfect....
    Humidity perfect....
    Turned 3 times a day.....
    put them in an egg carton at day 18, last Saturday....

    I went downstairs to feed and water my 3 week old RI Reds...
    HEY..what's that squeaking....2 are out...2 more are pipped..that I can see.....the egg carton makes it harder to see the pips and there's no rocking but looks like it works !!!

    I'm hoping for all 11 but we will see.......

    Kelso, I think are a bantam game bird. You either got half of each kind of eggs or you got a cross breed of the 2 -kelso and grey.

    They are game birds...really pretty, but can be extremely agressive to each other.
