    I placed the eggs from Cyn in the hatcher Saturday night. I checked them several times yesterday. Looked this morning and one of the Barred Rocks is pipped!!!!!!
    I am hoping for a few more by the time I get home!!!!

    I think this one was marked "Bess" I know I had some marked "Becca" too.

    I will try to keep up with the names of whose hatches so you know.

    When I can, I always mark eggs with who laid them so I can see if one of the ladies starts having too many unfertilized or they just dont hatch well. Its how I found out that my Lt. Brahma's eggs, though fertilized, will never develop. Must be some genetic issue. She's perfectly healthy otherwise.

    I use pencil to mark them. And I know some of the girls' eggs without seeing them lay, like Lexie's. Some of them, I need to see who laid the egg-especially the newer layers.
