That last pic made me laugh. You know that toy that has the whatever slowly move up through the top. That's what that one egg with the dark peep makes me think of.
I'm happy for you. Candling eggs under the broodys this morning shows I have really messed up. Pipping eggs under almost everyone and no one is marked to hatch this week-Crap! I will have to watch closely as not to lose the eggs that ARE to hatch next week. The eggs in the loft hatched 5 days early; apparently the golden d had been brooding before I took the eggs.It was. And add one that didn’t live to the hatching out # of each ones, truly not bad. I’m pleased.
And me sick again yesterday so had to leave them all on their own.
Not likely to happen. All I can figure is that the golden d had been brooding enough to get the eggs going. It just seems so unlikely in that she was off the nest many hours at a time and had never stopped laying eggs-another weird bird-the place is over run with them.You need to slow down Dan. You've got so much going on you're losing track of what is supposed to happen when.
