OOOOOOh, congrats of the freezer full! Oh yum!


Oh my gosh, you won't believe my crappy luck! I had a clutch of 3 eggs that I thought were fails. They sank in the water test. Retested today and still sank. I put them in a bowl to head to compost, cam eback a hour later and went out the door. I heard a peep and my heart stopped! How the heck could it sink and still be alive? They were due yesterday. I have them back in the bator after being rinsed and dries. I just feel like crap now. But, how could i have really known? I'll be doing eggtopsys from NOW ON! No matter what. I sure hope they are ok. Must be my girls age that has made every egg a slow hatcher. I read that has a lot to do with it. But, the cochins are older? Oh well. Just hope at least the one fella makes it to peep. Oh.
