    We ended up putting 27 of our own Orpington eggs in about 3:30 today. Hoping for some blue chicks. We have a splash rooster and splash and black hens/pullets. Our black pullets just started laying about a month ago. We will see how hatching pullet eggs turns out. Good luck to all.

    That must be where one of my Easter Eggers and other splash hen came from with the eggs you gave me last spring. Gray with some dark random feathers mixed in, right???

    Definitely the daddy of a couple of my girls then. I like the look especially on the easter egger.
