    I let my broodies do the work for me with the BCM eggs. They have a much better hatch rate then me !!!!

    Yes, I shipped some in from Chooks and tried her method on half of them I think the air cells were blotto on those, since the other eggs in the shipment that I could see into were a mess.


    My broodies are great, but the way the PO has treated all the boxes this year I havent bothered giving them shipped eggs.

    Going from pointy to oval end of the egg lightly sand off the brown color so that you make little stripes like a watermelon with stripes. Then brush the " dust" off.(I use a little brush used for horses faces.)You can get one at a tack store. This method will increase your hatch rate because they can transfer water and air more efficiently while incubating. Chookschick has a nice tutorial here on byc if you look it up...she is a maran hatching guru!:D

    Oh, the excess pigment reduces porousness? That's a curve ball.
