Exchequer Leghorn Eggs

We bought 10 fertilised Exchequer Leghorn hen eggs yesterday and 9 went into our incubator last night. There was no room for the 10th so that is in a box on top of our immersion heater in the bathroom. This breed is on the Rare Breed Trust's endangered list and ideally I would like to get a breeding group up and running. We also want them for their white eggs. Of our other hens, one lays cream coloured eggs, the rest a variety of brown.

The eggs are due to hatch on 26th January.
