Got 18 multicolored eggs from a buddies mom, They are mixed breed. the father is some type of crested that looks like fraggle rock. The mothers are RIR, Buff orps, barred rocks, black/white polish, some type of bantam, leghorn andlight bhrama. I am not sure if they are fertile yet but Im pretty sure they are. I would love to have a crested laying hen, and the rest will go back to my friends mothers coop. I know kinda the basics but all advice will be appreciated. My plan is to let them sit for a week(most were laid today but a few were from earlier in the week) then start incubating at 100.5 with water in the bottm of my hovabator. I will candle in 5 days to make sure theyre fertile. I'll probably only be able to turn them in the mornings and then in the evenigs on the days I work. Like I said, ALL ADVICE IS APPRECIATED.
