    i just whitnessed number 7s dive out of the egg. I need PICS lol

    Also was wondering If I can take the dry ones out? I have a 75wtt heat lamp set up in their pen and the room temp is 82.
    I also just realized how much is must suck to have to give birth to yourself. lol

    I do have one hen that always sits on all of her eggs, and the other girls. I usally take them to the bator so she will continue to lay. But I always see her in the laying box.
