    My broody BCM has been doing the same thing, and has yet to hatch a chick. That's why my expectations are so low for this hatch. I don't know if fertility is low, or she just hasn't learned how to brood yet. I do know that at least 2 made it to day 21, but she either killed them intentionally, or smashed them, so I wanted to incubate a batch as a test

    Welcome home!

    OK, so you are saying this "Family Friendly" site that caters to young uns are running ads for "phone escort" services??? And that makes sense how?? If they let me block rude people from my own thread I could at least stop them being rude here. [​IMG]

    I just want to note that the one that didn't make it was an early quitter at day 4 or so and was tossed the first week. The rest of the 20 made it to lockdown and hatched-perfectly healthy and are close to being moved to the coop. Six of those were candled EVERY SINGLE NIGHT to show that with proper handling and precautions, candling does not jeopardize a hatch. Good cliff notes BYC!!! [​IMG]

    I guess that falls into the "Be careful what you wish for" category.

    That is true, it could have been a possibility. I actually did two years for the associates degree straight after high school graduation, but most of my classes were at our extension site and 95% of the students were non-traditional (adult) students that had gone back to school after years of making a life in the world. One of them was even in her 60's. My best friend (at the time) and I were pretty much the youngest there...lol Main campus was just the opposite with traditional students, but we actually fit in better with the non traditional. lol

    That's awesome!

    Just shows there's always exceptions to everything.
