    When you get the eggs, dont put them in the incubator right away. Wait until the next day to finally put them in.

    all the eggs have plymouth rock dads but the females are buff orpington, blue orpingtons, barred plymouth rock, and some other stuff.

    to see a full list, see speckledhen's post in the bst area, on the fourth or fifth page.

    Good luck on your hatch. Unfortunately, the blue Orp hen wasn't laying this week at all. Maybe next time if you try to incubate again! I marked each egg with whose it is. For example, BR/SLW is Barred Rock rooster over Silver laced Wyandotte hen. And BR/NH is BR rooster over New Hampshire hen. There are even two Welsummer eggs in there-bet you like how dark they are!
