    Oh man..............................................................................................!


    WE LOVE YOU SALLY. AND YOU KNOW IT.

    One person? Only one person in all that you have helped. Come on, get your head out of the toilet, stop blowing....bubbles. Shrug those shoulders like you know you should.

    It's hard not to take things so personal at times, especially when you've gone out of your way for them. Sounds like this person is the one that took something tooooooo personal. They don't know you like most of us do. On the other hand, some folks like drama, and like to feel sorry for themselves. I've had it happen a few times on here. Boy, I leave the computer, and wait until I have stopped...blowing.... bubbles. So, hoping that when you stop and think how it really doesn't matter, that you will come back on and be our Silly Sally. We love it!

    Nooo, don't say this. Say this isn't true. [​IMG] I haven't got a rooster, when I do, it's for a short time because the collar only works for a while. So, I have them for a short while mating, then off they go when they get too noisy. This is why I don't know rooster behavior. Makes sense they would slow down, like the hens do laying at this time of yr. My friend told me that some of those eggs might not be fertile because her rooster had slowed down.. the marans boy. I am really wanting those splash marans to be fertile! And, a few of those big blue eggs! They are F1 OE's.

    Bet they do get spots. I have a leghorn/blue copper marans mix out there. Here is a photo of her now.

    So cute, she has some feathering on her feet. She has .. pink..earlobes. Will be interesting to see what color of an egg she lays.

    I would say the shell size would allow it to grow pretty HUGE! Does it work that way? Would it really grow as big as the shell will allow?



    Yes LED and as high lumens as you can find!

    I use an led from Walmart but I'm sure it isn't the best by a long shot. It's a $3 led from the camping supplies area. It's pretty decent, actually. I just don't get a lot of detail on dark and green eggs though.

    I use this or the led light on a phone which works better.

    You all need one like my DH made for me..out of a big ol bean can. We put an floresent light in there..he put card board and then duct tape around .. and of course, and nice little hole in the middle of the card board. I've been using it for around three yrs. now. Works great! Can see in those dark eggs pretty good, in the very beginning, and in the middle of time, I can see just barely above the air cell, if there are veins or. not. In the end, you can see the whole black body moving.
