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.
Now you're making me hungry. By the way, your am eggs will be going out on Monday.
Can somebody explain the sanding method to me?
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!
Oh, the excess pigment reduces porousness? That's a curve ball.
