Well I did do a clearing out of all the clears/non developing eggs a little bit ago, I ended up with 12 out of 18, which is still a good number. More than likely though it is 11 out of 18 because one of the blues was developing but to me it looks like it is a quitter, so we will see. I can't believe you already are putting eggs into lock down!!!!! WOW! Time has flown, I'm sure it hasn't for you, but not fair ;p ! Please keep us updated! I have 7 more days until I get to put mine into lock down. How do you lay yours? On their sides or upright? I'm still trying so hard to figure out how I want to do this. I was thinking well since they have sat upright this whole time maybe that would be best, but then again I don't know. I went and bought that shelf liner to put on the bottom of the bator today, I even got their brooder set up today too and planning to get that room ready this week. Right now it is a toy/play room for my son but next weekend I will be emptying all his toys out into his bedroom just until the chicks will be ready to go outdoors and I can give that room a thorough cleaning.
