    [​IMG] I know the feeling. Congratulations! Unfortunately, I have had three days in the last week with no eggs. It's like Christmas is over!

    Is it bad that nobody is sitting on the eggs? I have a Buff, and a bue sweed and they are about 8 months old and then I have a drake Roeon that is about 2 years old.

    Quote:No, if they sit on them then that means they want to hatch them,and its probably not the best idea to leylt them sit because it will be getting cold out soon.

    So what do I do? Take them away, don't let her hatch them ? I know somebody with an incubator that said he would take them but they are my first eggs.....I was hoping for little ones peeping
