    I'll be setting 14 BCM eggs. It'll be my 2nd experience-1st was dismal. Trying a Suro-20 bator this time, should be less stressful but I'm sure my nerves will kick in.
    LOL I'll be your hatching buddy, too. We're on for Sat!

    Topeka,

    I'd bought some Black Copper Marans eggs from [email protected]@2four through BYC. They're a French breed I'm getting familiar with through BYC and a few other sites-lay a deep, chocolate colored egg. Hoping to have success with them.[​IMG] They were shipped to me (16 in all but 2 were cracked) hopefully the 14 left aren't scrambled.
    My only other attempt was w/ a little giant bator and none of my 7 hatched but a few were pipping and fully developed, the others didn't develop past the 1st wk or so.

    What are you setting?

    Mia
