Wasn't sure which section to put this one in, so you guys can move it if need be. Over the past year or so, I have sent my Lt. Brahma, Miranda's eggs to people, to incubate and none ever developed. I got suspicious and incubated maybe three sets of five eggs each, all hers, to see if they would ever develop into chicks. None ever did, though the bullseye was plain to see in ones I did crack open. Till the last few months, Miranda had been with the Blue Orps, led by Suede. So was the Buff Brahma, Caroline. Her eggs developed fine; in fact, the chicks were very vigorous and my own Glenda is Caroline's daughter with Suede. I decided that Miranda had some genetic abnormality that prevented her eggs from turning into chicks. A couple weeks ago, I sent BluRoo in Florida a set of BR eggs and on a whim, I asked if she would incubate just one of Miranda's, that I hadn't tried in ages. Miranda is now in the laying flock with Dutch and Mace, my BR roosters. I wanted to see if anything had changed. Lo and behold, Miranda's egg is developing!! I cant believe this. Is it possible that Miranda and Suede's physiology just didn't mesh somehow? Have any of you breeders ever heard of this?
