    It wasn't the chalazae. It looked just like a miniture fetus. I wish I would have taken a picture. It was connected to the end of the yolk. It was small maybe an 1/8 of an inch.

    Someone missed an egg that a bird was sitting on then....unless it's over 100 degrees in your nests.

    That's what I am thinking. Plus with all the girls laying in the same box these eggs can get sat on for a long while too.

    Well made it through night two of incubation. The temperature held nice and steady at 99 to 100 degrees. Humidity about 37 to 40 degrees. No spikes, no drops. I think I'm finally figuring out the incubators temperament!!!! I knew this would be worth it for knowledge. Day seven can't get here fast enough.

    Wow, that's crazy! Is the rain supposed to end soon?

    We had snow yesterday and last night, ended up with about an inch and a half but it's melted now:

    The mountains look gorgeous now.

    Hope you and the boys stay warm and dry!
