    I messed up on my dates. I stopped turning my eggs on Thursday because I thought Sunday was the 19th. Geez....is that going to hurt anything?

    Also....I bred a barred rock roo to a white leghorn and hatched some eggs about 4 weeks ago. I have two really odd but beautiful roos or hens, don't know which yet....they look like seabrights in a way. The are red with kind of a white splash on their wings. So...how did I do that. I orginally bought the barred rock from MacMurrays and the White Leghorn as well?

    Quote:Did you think Sunday was day 19? or the date May 19?

    Either way you stop turning on the 18th day of incubation.
