    Yes they are pullet eggs, and we are so proud of them.

    What a long haul to check fertility, candling will be tough.

    After a couple of false steps on the first attempts, and a change in diet, the girls seem to be figuring it out now.

    We placed them with some Rhode Island Reds for clarity in the photos.

    Color is OK, hopefully it will darken a bit.

    Woo Hoo, excitement is in the air at our house. Now wish us luck.
