    I have 4 eggs in my bator.. the mothers are either black rocks or 3/4 sussex lights their father either barred plymouth rock or sussex light!! So abit of an assortment!!
    I brought them off ebay would have had 6 but candled 2 darker eggs thinking they were empty cracked them and saw veins [​IMG] Felt awful for days after i keep taking a peek through the top of the bator its hard to stop yourself lifting the lid and having a nose!! I have no thermometer with my little covatutto incubator so just keeping my fingers crossed i have just orderd a new one Brinsea Eco only its not the right one!! i wanted the mini advance so am trying to talk the lady on ebay into giving me a refund so i can get the right one but she is not budging!! grrr!! x
