    Set 3 eggs tonight in my new R-Com mini incubator (that I won on the BYC rooster crowing photo contest!!!!!!!)
    Two Black Copper Marans and one White Leghorn egg. They have a buff colored EE roo with them and a BCM roo with them. Should be some lovely mutts, hope for pullets!!!!!!!! Was gonna set 3 of the dark eggs, but I dropped one coming back from the coop this afternoon [​IMG]

    So if Feb 15 is 3 weeks from now, I shall call these my V-day chicks [​IMG]

    I put 8 eggs under a broody this evening. I'll be hatching along with you... due the 15th or 16th I imagine. Wish I would have done it yesterday...

    I have the Quail egg insert and I'm hoping the Serama eggs will be small enough to fit in the quail egg turner, otherwise I'll put more than 3 in and turn those ones by hand.

    We're in lockdown!!!!

    I only candled once, and with two dark brown eggs all I could tell was that there was definitely development. All three were fertile and grew at least past day 14, just not sure if they're all still with us, but hey, we'll find out!!
