    Great thinking! We have a couple of motorcycle/ATV dealers locally. Now a Can-Am crate would be really big...like a snowmobile crate.

    Well I've now candles the rest of the eggs. Not sure if all the silkie eggs are developing but a couple are clear enough to see the viens and some are too dark to see into. But at least there are no definite duds at this stage( although I don't think the broken ara egg has much chance) so I'm still looking likely to get 29 chicks on 31st or 1st

    Good luck on your hatch!

    Just wait until you turn 50 - that will smack you enough once you remember what you once posted on BYC long, long ago! [​IMG]

    There is, but I never saw it enforced. Didn't say I was 18 then.............

    Always nice to to see your rambling! Ramble away.. that's what we are here for. I was the one who was supposed to retire but after we moved, I got a part-time job offer I couldn't refuse. DH is the one going nuts - he'll probably look for a job in the fall or try to pick up more landscaping jobs.

    So I just had my first unauthorized episode of chicken math. I have a broody that just wont break - even after cool baths, wire cage for 2 days, etc. So I went to the local poultry swap and picked up 4 OE eggs (BCM x Blue Ameraucana). Eggs are a very nice true blue. Saw pictures of the parents and another pullet she had that was a product of the same parents. Looked exactly like a black Ameraucana except for feathered legs.

    Betty went broody last year and I was able to break her pretty easily. This year she is much more determined to hatch that golf ball so I caved in and we'll see if she can hatch these eggs. Am planning on following the blue method and maybe only candle them around day 10 to pull the quitters, but they have only been under her 30 minutes and I already want to check them!!

    If you even touch eggs under a broody you are so not a blue
