you may or may not belive this but its true, the first time i used the suro i had bought 12 white leghorn eggs and 6 cuckoo marans eggs off ebay being my first time i could hardly wait to get started.....once i had put the 18 eggs in the incubator i noticed things were not right to much weight at 1 side?
So i went into the fridge and added 6 eggs from fridge here is what i got...
4 cuckoo marans
3 white leghorns
5 isa browns fae the fridge help ma boab, my success rate is aways so far been around 50%, i have 24 welsummer eggs in just now due date 9th april, i dont candle to much,  in fact only once around 12th day then i leave them alone. this time candling may be harder as the welsummer eggs are really dark but we'll see how it goes.

P.S. you can see my first attempt on youtube he he SEARCH under  'AMUNDOE'
Currently haved 3 x 5 months old peking bantams,2 x isa brown, 1 x welsummer and 5 welsummer chicks and thats me at my full quota, their great fun and i think everybody should keep a couple of chooks as there great and the eggs are a bonus  LOL
