    they are chicken eggs...the hen is a Cochin/wyandotte mix and the rooster was a Ameraucana...they will look a little funny maybe even cute idk but he got killed and she is laying left and right but want set :( so i figured i would give it a try with only 3 eggs so there want me but only 3 deaths if i fail at this.....it's my very first time....

    yes it is ! one egg had a really bad smell to it and i thought is was bad so i busted it and there was a chick embryo in it...but i could not figure out why it smelled so bad ! it smelled like it was rotten !

    I set 13 eggs I rec'd from egg swaps on 5-24-12. Bantam frizzle & silkie mixes I think. So far so good. Thinking about candling to see what is happening. This is my first inbator hatch.
