    Been working with these eggs for 18 days now.
    Started with 12 mutt bantie eggs, and 4 Speckled Hamburg eggs.
    3 Hamburgs were not fertile.
    1 Banty mutt was not fertile.

    Been turning and doing everything right and candling and they are really looking good, and tonight I was going to give them their last turn and lay them on their sides.

    I dropped Ole #7. It cracked. Very slightly, but is is a visible crack.
    I put it back in with the rest and we will see what happens.

    Ole #7. If it hatches, that is going to be its name. I will band it and keep track of it.

    wish me luck! [​IMG]

    Ok, ok, sorry. I fixed it. Last time I said "He", I got scolded by "She". I guess I just need to give up and call everybody "it" from now on, lol

    Ooops sorry, I didn't get it.
    I thought it was an abbreviation for something.
    I would have realized if it said "ol #7" just didn't click I guess.
