    These eggs are from fellow BYC'er PUMPKINPUP! Aren't they pretty![​IMG] This picture was taken outside today (cloudy)! The picture makes them look lighter than they actually are. Thanks again Robin!![​IMG] P.S. How long should I let them set before putting them in the already warm, waiting bator??? It has not been cold here for the past few days and they came from south of me.

    DOH!!! LOL I forgot to add the PICTURES!!! Sorry!

    Nice looking eggs! Let them rest 6 to 8 hours, it helps the air sacs besides them just coming to your house temps.

    Wow, Beautiful eggs! Are they Marans or Welsummes? I usually let the shipped eggs rest about 7~8 hours too. Good luck with your beautiful eggs [​IMG]
