My 80 year old (this month) mom wants me to have some Buttercups here for her when she visits. This will be my third attempt to hatch buttercups. All your good thoughts and prayers are appreciated! The previous two have been busts. These eggs are sure to be the winner, though! Mom just left for home -- while she was here, my porch pullet (RIR) started to lay, and Mom would wait for her to have her egg for breakfast every day. They developed quite a bond! It was cute to see mom shoo the mean roosters away from the porch in Bitsy's defense. Anyway, THANKS!
