Oh my goodness!!! I have had some questions along the way about candling and such... my hen laid twenty eggs over QUITE a long period and most before I really saw any breeding. I REALLY doubted any were viable, except maybe more recent ones and was going to try candling again this weekend to get rid of any "duds" from over a month ago. BUT, miracle of all miracles and WHAT A SURPRISE.... I have poults!!!! She's up on the nest and this is my VERY first time being a grandma of ANY sort of poultry so many questions to follow but, I know there are at least a couple and one got too far from her so I had to give him back and my, OH MY, was that cute!!! I am in love all over again Congratulations Meepette "MaMa" Baisley!!! What a gentle, tender, doting Mommy and I am SO proud!!!!
