    I'm sorry too cheeka. You have had your share of that. Good job making it tighter to keep out the killers.[​IMG]

    Enough of the trash talking RK Broody It is time. I have three eggs with holes in them. You better get busy. Looks like I am going to be on time tomorrow.

    What took you so long? And just "holes in eggs" your bragging about?

    Day 20.....and we have chicks......or at least RK Broody does. Two so far that I could see. Three of mine have tiny holes. But I have no chicks yet.

    Thanks.....feeling better about the hatch rate this time around. RK is a awesome broody. It has been a month since I have spotted her out of that nest box. I know she gets out. But I have not caught her out of it. The other BR would never miss a treat session when she was sitting on eggs. But this one is too dedicated to get up for anything.

    Woohooo Can't wait to see who wins.

    I have three eggs that are no good. Is it stupid if I leave them in anyways? I mean one is clearly unfertile but doesn't smell, one has a blood ring (or at least I think it does) and one has no movement. I feel like the blood ring and unfertile I should take out but basically to leave the not moving egg just in case. Nothing smells. Day ten here.

    Honestly I never candled any of my eggs or RK's eggs. So there is probably a few bad ones here too that need to be tossed. At this rate I should know tomorrow which ones are bad.

    This took about five minutes. I think it used a hammer
