    I moved some of my "unsure" marans eggs to the incubator a couple of days ago to give my broody a break. I am still unsure of those eggs BUT...the ones I left under my first time broody (there are 4)....It's a party in all FOUR! I am on day 11. Gosh this is eggciting! [​IMG]

    just thought I'd share. [​IMG] I'm a first timer.... don't judge me. [​IMG]

    Congrats [​IMG] It's always so rewarding to candle eggs for the first time & see that they really are developing [​IMG]

    Thanks! I am so confused about the ones in the bator. I candle them every day but still stumped. Of course the first eggs I try to hatch myself are marans :: hits forehead :: I can see air sacs but the rest is just a blur and no party like the eggs under my broody. So I guess I should hold off and wait. I don't want to give up on them if they are being illusive.
