    nope, she got the incubation! you just need to do that candling and pulling bad eggs so they dont bomb her and the others! How is she doing on them? she is still getting off to eat well enough?
    I wouldnt move until they hatch! what I found is that they stop setting then! wait until they are out and finished then move them all !



    Thanks! She is doing awesome. She comes out once a day to eat. Then spends the rest of her time sitting. She even happily adopted another egg, one of our other hens laid.

    I'm completely new to this. Candle after the first week, right?

    Here in MD signs aren't required to post property; the property owner can paint a blue stripe on the tree trunks. Guess they got tired of replacing shot up signs.

    Slowly Losing it......
    Problem is signs and spray paint only work on those who follow the law.

    Would definately be better to look at.

    I love bacon & pork chops, but I won't have a hog around me because of a story my grandpappy told me when I was a kid. He said if a cow went down to calve, a hog would root up inside of her, pull the calf, eat it, and kill the cow in the process.
