    how long can you keep eggs beforeyou put them in the bator( or under the broody hen) and do you keep them in the fridge or out?

    Thank you all. I am happy with them. this is my second attempt this year at hatching and raising BCM chicks. the first batch was about 4 months old when some ones dog killed them all back in June. I almost gave up on them then i bought more eggs and now i am finally getting to see some rewards. and don't worry i took care of the 3 running at large dogs and these chickens are safe and sound

    1Mammahen i could send you extra roo's lol

    Wow! That is a beautiful egg. What a nice reward to get that color after all that you have been through. Hope you hatch out some nice chickies.
