    So excited I put in 30 of my own eggs had 10 that nothing developed in ( mostly my bantam eggs my bantam rooster prefers girls double his size lol ) and 4 that stopped at different points left me with 16 moving baby's cant wait till they hatch their all mixes so it will be fun to see what I get :) I'm hoping my little bantam actually got some of my blue andalusians . Anyone have any ideas what a red cochin bantam x blue andalusians will produce ? Now for the long wait the last 3 days are the hardest :)

    Sally Sunshine I just wiped off the ones from last years hatch my kids fight over the little windows . My husband looked at me like I was nuts the first time I peeped at the chicks but then I caught him doing it to one when he got up to go to work lol
