    I noticed that the local pop can redemption center was selling farm fresh eggs. When i looked at them, some were a light blue. I bought a dozen out of the refrigerator and 10 of them made it home and under a broody hen. Only 4 of the 10 hatched and the other 6 did not develop, (wonder why?). Here are the chicks !!![​IMG]

    Too cool ... Were they sold as hatching eggs or did you just take a chance?
