    I just ordered Maran hatching eggs - they should be arriving around March 9th. When do you start counting the days? When they're laid or when they're put into the incubator? I've read everything I can about hatching eggs, but does anyone have any sage advice? It would be very helpful to us. I'll post again when they arrive in case anyone is starting a batch the same day. This is my first try at hatching and I'm sooooooo excited! I totally understand when people say they can't wait - I can hardly wait for the eggs to arrive! [​IMG]
