Whoop! They're fertile and developing!

  1. My new(ish) mottled Cochin hen has finally started laying and I set her 1st egg Fri 1/6 --- IT'S FERTILE!!
    Set 3 more 1/12 (lol, she's staring slow).
    I had the bator open moving eggs to the hatcher, so I candled them this afternoon. They are developing too!
    I was worried they might have 'fluffy-butt' Cochin fertility issues, but no problems with these two [​IMG]
