(My friend is so kind, she offered one of the "millions" of chicks she has from that trio since I cracked one. Chicken friends are fantastic!)
Sorry the eggs got cracked. I think your incubator is right, set more next month. Nice friend.

Awww. Congratulations. If it is stuck, use a paper towel, wash cloth, or something damp with warm water to carefully get the wheel off.
