My 1st hatch - hatch day!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So excited it's day 21 of my 1st hatch! Started with 23 eggs in my Brinsea Eco 20. 14 were shipped eggs from my pet chicken (vibrant egg layers). The rest were mixed eggs from my own flock.

On day 18 I threw out 2 clear eggs - all other developed fully and showed movement! Very impressed considering they were shipped!

A couple pipped yesterday and I had my first hatch on Day 20 in the evening. He was pretty lonely until this morning...I woke up to 4 more babies!

Now I'm up to 10/23 hatched and pips/rocking in ALL of the remaining eggs.

I am very pleased with my first hatch, especially with shipped eggs. I'm hoping for a few more peeps tonight!

Here are some pictures...

So far I have one blue sex link, 4 American Flowers, 3 Super Chocolate Egg Layers (all from my pet chicken) and 2 of my barnyard mixes. All are doing well!

Congrats! Theyre adorable!!!! Super exciting!!! You know, I've had pretty darn good luck with shipped eggs even though everyone had advised me against it. I usually get bored through the winter when my ladies slow down laying and order from ebay!

5 more hatched! I'm at 15/21! Now the question is where to put all these chicks (and the next batch I will undoubtedly want to hatch) when they're all full grown? Lol
