Those are wonderful- I can't wait for mine!!

3 are under Coronation and Light Sussex broodies, 1 each, and 3 are in the r-com 20. I'm chomping at the bit!

Quote:No- I've not had my torch with me when out at my breeding facility (on another farm) so I'm doing it tonight. I've been sniffing them, though!!


I've already put my flashlight in my purse! Soooooo forgetful.

Well, phooey.


I just candled, and it looks like I have one peachick that may make it. 2 didn't begin to develop, 2 were quitters, and 1 is hard to tell- could be still going, but could be a goner. If the one makes it, it may have trouble hatching, because the membrane is only about 45% attached- there are distinct lines indicating the multiple drops from different angles the box went through on its way here.

If I get one bird, it needs to be a pullet!! I'm stunned given the stellar packing job, but this is the kind of detachment you can tell was shipping abuse.
