Thor my 5 month old bonus exotic with my Ideal order has come of age!!! At first when I would watch him I thought, "What's wrong with him? Does he have bugs?" The way he would puff up and shake himself. Made me wonder. Then one day I read Speckledhen's post on how to tell the difference between a fertile egg and an infertile egg. Ever since I am fascinated with checking my eggs. I'll even go as far as making that French Toast for the extra two eggs. Don't get me wrong I am not being wasteful, DH loves French Toast (eww), I just can't believe I have fertile eggs. Now the question is what will I get? I know it will be a "barnyard mix" if I hatch them, but are there any characteristics that will be desirable. Oh, Yeah, almost forgot. The girls........... now laying .........3 Comets, 3 EEers. Not laying yet..........Cochins, black, blue ,buff and partridge.
