    Well I decided to give it a go once more this year, only this time, i am hatching my own eggs! They will be mixed breeds, as all my birds free range together. I am realy excited to see what I come up with! Hopefully I get a good Hatch![​IMG]

    P.s the list of breeds I own is in my Suggy. should be interesting!

    I put 16 wheaten penedesenca eggs in the incubator on Friday. The three week wait is killing me. I don't know how all you human mothers and fathers could stand it for nine months! The eggs are too dark so I can't candle.... so I will know nothing until day 21!

    I set 4 eggs on the 15th I had to take out 1 because of air bubbles. Today I candled and I have 2 that are all dark except for a air bubble. Its hard to see they are brown eggs. The other one doesn't look like it took. I will wait a few more days to see. I made my incubator so I only wanted to do few eggs just in case it didn't work. So I guess I will have two chicks.
