    I am locking down my Cochin eggs today. I had started out with 18 shipped eggs and now I have 7 that look great and ready to hatch. So I hope we get some babies in a few days. [​IMG]

    They should be white and buff. Some are frizzled so that's what I'm hoping for. [​IMG]

    Good luck I have 4 more days before lockdown here and I still can't candle my Ameraucana eggs at all but they do seem full. Guess we will have to wait and see.
