I had to sneak a peek so I stole one egg and WOOHOO it had great veins! She has 4 pure and one mixed under her. (Spitzhauben is the only white one) I was a bit unsure because this little porcelain d'uccle broody leaves the nest every morning to chow on some scratch I throw out, but she gets back to it after a little while. She sure did get mad at me! I had to use the flashlight as a lightsaber to distract her from my hand as I slipped the egg back under her. Made me feel like DarthVAder or something, she did.
