    Well phooey. Candled, and 9/17 are clear!! :rant
    All 3 of my EE look good, and 1/2 bantam. The 2nd bantam has a blood ring.
    1 SLW, all 4 turken, 1 cochin, 1 GLW are clear..... As well as both dark brahma!!! Nooooooo!! :hit


    So down to: 3 EE, 1 bantam, (my eggs) 1 cochin, 1 LO, and one GLW. Pretty bad.... Don't think I'll be buying from this person again, unless day 14 reveals otherwise. I left all the clears in, even though some could almost be used as a lantern they are so see-through.

    Hi [​IMG]

    I've set 24 Buff Orpingtons, 18 Lavender Orpingtons, and 6 of my own Marans mixed eggs (likely one pure FBCM and the others FBCM x Olive Egger, Ameraucana, and Easter Egger). Most of them are not for me, but I will keep a few chicks hopefully! Hatch date May 12.

    Never had Orpingtons, but always wanted them.

    (Even though I definitely don't need more chickens. I will have a bit more space if I can finish renovating a shed this summer to put my pure breeding FBCM and BBS Ameraucana groups in.)

    Just saw 6 hawks fly by. SIX. Thankfully the girls have been locked away since the hawk incident 2 weeks ago. But why would there be so many I wonder?

    I want to let a broody hen hatch this spring as well as incubating, but just when I actually want it no one seems dedicated [​IMG].

    Except for my lone commercial White Leghorn who is fiercely broody. I don't trust her at all, I don't think she has good intentions.

    Quote:Mine always seem to pic the worst times to go broody. I have one girl sitting now and two others who want to take her eggs. I had to put them in a seperate pen. Keeping up would be so much easier if my multi quotes would come back. Anyone else lost theirs and their toolbar? I posted on the help forum but haven't had much luck with fixing it. They are putting it off on my computer so just checking to see of others have issues.
