    I just set 7 Black Copper Marans eggs under my broody Dark Cornish. They should arrive on Dec 23rd. This will be my first batch of eggs to try hatching. Hopefully momma does a good job, I tested her by waiting to see if she was really broody, because she faked me out once. She hasn't moved from the nest in 2 weeks now, so she's a broody.

    My eggs arrived yesterday and the day before, and now I'm setting 24 Silkies and 15 Mille Fleur Cochins bantams today. So total 39. I hope they will all hatch. [​IMG]

    All the best to you and I folks. Let's keep a good watch over our babies in the incubators and hope they all come out nice and healthy in time for Christmas. YAY.
