    I was going crazy not knowing if the 4 BR eggs under my BO hen were growing. Adding to my stress was the fact that I read today that the unfertile eggs can explode and cause the other eggs to spoil. Well I got a small lamp and put a 60w bulb in it. Got the top of a shoebox cut a small hole in it and, it worked.
    I saw veins in all four eggs. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This afternoon I went down to see the hen and heard loud cheeping. I thought the eggs had hatched. I lifted her up and there was only eggs. Boy those eggs can be loud.[​IMG] There are only four and I can only hear sound coming from one so far. I'm worried about the other 3. [​IMG] [​IMG]
