    i have eggs in the incubator, and i have been noticing that the membranes have been extremely thick. Will the baby chicks have a hard time breaking through the membrane, or am i crazy? [​IMG]

    Hmmmm, I was just wondering the same thing the other day. I have a few of my Langshans eggs in the bator, and the membrane on the ones we have been eating, is very tough. Guess we will know in about 16 days! LOL
