One egg down

Alas, we have lost one of the eggs in the incubator. It was cracked and leaking egg white. The problem is of our own making. The incubator is designed for a maximum of 10 hen eggs but we put in 12. We had planned only 6 eggs but our supplier gave us 12 so all of them went into the incubator. It was a tight squeeze and as a result we ended up with one of them cracking. It's a lesson we have learnt the hard way.

Assuming all goes well, the remaining eggs should be hatching in the week starting 18th March.
