    cool, hope all goes well for you!! Have a few maran hens myself, although never hatched any out yet- maybe next time tho! How do you rate the marans overall, good health, good layers??

    Let me know how things go for you and good luck [​IMG]

    I have a total of 12 in lockdown due tomorrow, trying to keep humidity above 65 as last hatches were poor and I think it was due to low humidity.
    I have one pipping a white orpington and the rest????? Don't know if I will be able to sleep!![​IMG]

    I have 4 eggs in lockdown, which was supposed to be today but due to early rocking they went in Friday. No pips yet though.
