    So I decided today to give her some eggs (5 so far, 3 EE, 1 BO or RIR, I cant tell them apart, and 1 bantam, I want to add another bantam egg later)...
    What the heck, its just a couple more chickies

    I sent out several test eggs, to celebrate my 1000th post. Today many of them are hatching. So, I am sitting here at the computer waiting for updates! Sure is fun!

    I'm so glad you got a good candling! It's only 3 weeks, but it seems like forever!
