I m a proud father of 10 little chicks , and more on the way. All staggered hatch. I turn them about 3-4 time a day. I left alone the eggs that seem like it's going to be on it last few days before it hatches. They hatch about 2 at a time , the experience is unreal! I would like to give thanks to all those fellow chicken lovers that gave me input . Without your help I will be like a headless chicken. Lol .
