the blonde one came from the egg that my kids and i candled every night to track it's progress so they are over the moon that it hatched, :biggrin: being the only blonde one makes it easy for them to find it. o.k and me. :roll:

i cracked one of the eggs that my hen should have hatched on tuesday and it was a live one, ick, i'm a murderer :(
candled the rest and now they sit in the bator with the 3 last barnie eggs that still have air pockets too, there must be a cool spot in the bator, and under the hen :?: i am not cracking another one yet but i will do a post mortem.
the ones that hatched were closer to the fan, might put another one in the other end before the next lot go in, yes, everyone is right, it is addictive.
:chicks: :chicks:
if anyone can sex utility barnies, please have a guess. :rofl:
