    [​IMG] Good for you. What breeds do you have? You are fortunate that they allow you to have so many birds in the suburbs. I know we would love to see pictures of them. Are you in 4H or FFA? Welcome to Backyard chickens. If you post on your state thread maybe you can find others that are showing and learn from each other.

    I have:
    - Bantam Sussex
    - Bantam Australorps
    - Bantam Anconas

    Also i am looking for some help with a bantam game hen that is sitting on 12 eggs. I also didnt candle them.
    On the 22nd of September (3 weeks ago) in the late afternoon i put 12 eggs under my game hen. She has been sitting on them ever since getting off for about 30mins every couple of mornings.
    This morning on the 21st day one egg burst under her, so i cleaned off the eggs and her bedding and left her alone. when i got back this afternoon none had hatched and there i don't think there is any pipping.

    Will they still hatch or are the eggs not fertile?
    I read somewhere that if you put them under in the late afternoon then the eggs are due the next day. Is this true? if so that means that the eggs would be due tomorrow?

    Your help would be much appreciated
