    I'm looking forward to following your thread and in seeing which does better... Frieda or Brinsea[​IMG]

    Me too!

    Thanks!

    I work at a school, so I have shredded office paper in the nestboxes. I've got deep litter in the coop, though it's really more like deep bedding.

    I really don't think Frieda's quite big enough to cover 2 dozen LF eggs...

    Thanks!

    Where there's a will, and a lot of stubbornness...[​IMG] That said, if they'd all been BCM, I don't think I could've gotten any extra in.

    We'll have to go by percentages, since I split the eggs 9 and 11 instead of 10 and 10[​IMG]

    Be glad all the BCM's weren't like this...

    96 gram whopper, lol... although, it would be interesting to see Frieda trying to cover 9 of these... :lau

    I wish I had a broody to do a comparison with also. Your thread is going to be exciting and FUN! You should do one of the polls and see who is for Freida and who is for the Brinsea[​IMG] but I think we'd all be pulling for Frieda. GO GIRL![​IMG]
