I did buy a few things, just didn't pick up any new birds. I bought 2 handmade large bird cages, love them! Also, bought some homemade canned pickles, pickled okra and raspberry jam, they were all delicious!Yay! Will definitely make it next time. Since last writing I’ve had 3 hatch & seem to be good. Little strange that they are 3 different colors for same breed of chicken . (Blue Maran) Just happy 3 hatched.
I’ve been on here all night last night, reading & my brain feels scrambled.(No pun intended) I still have 3 that havent pipped or anything. Another one pipped but did not make it. So out of a dozen, I have 3 live chicks 6 bad eggs & 3 unknown.
I tried to candle them but all three look completely different, not to mention they’re dark brown eggs (I do not recommend for a 1st timer).
So one is, from what I can tell, solid (no air pocket)
One has air pocket on both ends (90%sure that one is dead) & last but not least, one looks kinda ”normal”. With a pretty obvious, but small air pocket. So I’m off to find the candling section.
Did you buy anything today?
In the past I have hatched and raised black copper means, and yes the dark eggs are hard to candle, lol. I'm not sure why you have 3 different colored babies if they all came from same colored birds.
Right now I have 3 separated cops with buff silkies, mixed bantams and barnyard mixes.
No one is laying any eggs yet. So just being patient, which is so hard, lol.
