    I just did them this eve and i saw those spider vein thingys on about2/3 of the 32 eggs. Sadly it doesnt look like that cracky egg and the two black polish didnt make it [​IMG]

    I got a wild mix of chickens. There are different colors of silkies, frizzles, cochins, polish and one mystery chicken egg. They are mostly bantam but for a few standard sized polish and cochin. I put them in the bator last week friday for the silkies and frizzles and the rest got in there in the late evening the same day.
    I picked more ornamental fowl as you can see. I didnt care to much about their laying abilities. But on the end of april i will get in a dozen banty ameraucanas, which i think will turn out to be EE's. My daughter picked those. After that its either geese(pilgrim or sebastopol) or button quail.

    It can be a little difficult to tell on day 6 or 7.

    Try again on day 10 before you chuck any.
