    So the ladies have been laying pretty heavily the last couple of days so we've collected some eggs and I started them late last night. Here are a few pics of the 13 eggs I put in the incubator.

    This is mostly just to see whose breeding, but also we would love to have a few more hens.

    So I float/ water candled today and 9 of the 11 sunk fast. So those are out and I have two left but only one looks developed inside. The other one might have just turned bad enough to float, but most of the egg is still under water.

    I think either the temp spiked and we didn't catch it (weird weather) or I handled them too much... Either way... A little bummed.

    We can always try again I guess.... So just an update.
