    I received an email asking me how I mark my eggs. I tried to reply but the email failed due to the dns error: domain name not found.

    If your name is Pam and you emailed me here is your answer:

    I always use a pencil.

    I write the date collected and the breed on the big end up.

    I also number the eggs as i weigh them and put them in the bator.

    If I am hand turning I put an X on one side and an O on the other.

    When I have a staggard hatch I also mark who I got eggs from if they are not my own and the date they went into the bator.

    I hope this helps!

    I am not Pam but thank you Miss Prissy. That is one less question I have to ask on my own.
