    I set 20 Blue Laced Red Wyandotte eggs this morning. I am hatching these so that we will have some chicks when my cousins come over for easter! And so I can get more hens because I am selling eggs before they are laid! Anybody else that I can hatch with?

    OK so I could not wait any longer and candled all of them tonight and all but 2 had veining and movement!! I think those two weren't fertile but I left them in just in case. Anybody else set eggs on 3/14? How are your eggs doing?

    UPDATE!!! I candled again today and 2 were infertile and 1 looks like it quit after my last candling. So that leaves me with 17 eggs that are developing nicely. [​IMG] did anyone else set eggs on 3/14 or close to it?
