    I only have one hen laying right now because the others aren't old enough, and she is giving around three a week, so I figured I'd get them in the incubator and see what happens. I've never specifically set her eggs before so I'm excited to see what happens. I set three Buff Orps at the same time. Wish me luck.

    Thanks everyone! Both my roosters are very nice and gentle. Those two have quite the presence when out in the chicken yard as well. They are good boys. The pic of the hen there doesn't do her justice. She is a year old and she's the biggest fluffiest chicken here.

    Quote:Yeah Steve more waiting. I am especially interested to know whether these Blue Orp eggs are fertile. I'm already positive the Buffs are, I just wanted to have more than three eggs to set.
