    Yes, there it is. Is it OCD, or is there a hatching reason to separate them?


    Aha! If I separate all the eggs by color, then it will be much easier to tell what hatches from which eggs.

    Morning Bert. So you are on day three. Boy you got awhile. I don't toss any eggs until the very last candling and I can really see what happens to the eggs as education. Don't forget to mark air cells... It's kinda cool to see the chicks pip right on mark. So excited to keep following this. Xoxoxo

    It's slow going, isn't it? I set my turkeys around the same time you set your chickens. When candling this early, I look for a rosy glow instead of a yellow glow.

    BertS is a patient superhero. But just barely. Tonight, when we turn eggs, I will separate using some hardware cloth that I got.
