Eggs in the incubator
We got 10 exchequer leghorn eggs to go into our incubator on Sunday but we could not fit them all in. One eggs was left out so I made a one-egg incubator out of a small plastic box with some kitchen paper in it (to stop the egg rolling around and to hold a bit of water to ensure there is moisture) and then put it on top of our immersion heater in the bathroom. I don't know if it will work but I didn't want to waste the egg. We are expecting hatching to take place on 25-26 January.
We keep a lid loosely sitting on to of the box but have removed it for the photo to show the egg.
