Eggs in the incubator 'count'. Eggs under a broody don't 'count' So if I have 50 eggs in the bator and 12 under broodies, I only have to confess...errr...claim the 50 in the bator. Also, eggs that have not been candled yet in the bator do not 'count' cause they are unknowns. So of the 50 in the bator, I only have to claim 25. See how easy that is. From 62 to 25 in 2 seconds.
