    I set 13 Black Copper Marans, 2 black sex links and 3 mutts. The BCM I purchased and the other 5 were freebies [​IMG]

    This is my first hatch so I'm really excited.

    Sunny side up :)
    U must have a huge incubator to set all those eggs!! I will be setting 22 blue marans and 5 blue copper marans eggs later this afternoon (still waiting for my blue copper girl to lay her 5th egg lol). Won't these all be due to hatch on July 4th? Cool they would be born on the 4th of July....
