    Hey there! From what I've reAd, they're probably leghorns. You should check out the incubating and hatching thread for specific details as to how to successfully hatch eggs. Theres a "Learning Center" tab at the top of the screen. from there select hatching eggs. You'll find threads that include pictures of where the air cell should be at different stages of development as well as your humidity levels and temperature. Good luck!

  6. not leghorns, their eggs are white. They are probably either RIRs or some production breed.

    Just make shure you keep the humitity levels regulated and no change in heat....Make shure you turn them at least twice a day....best to put a mark on one side. Stop turning them 1 week before they are to hatch. Good Luck! can`t wait to see them [​IMG]
