No, I saved eggs three consecutive days. My 1st batch had 7 viable eggs, but only six hatched on Friday.  They are alive and healthy as of today. My 2nd batch had 4 viable eggs, which were due to hatch Saturday, but none have yet. My 3rd batch were due yesterday evening.  I haven't been out to check them yet this morning, so I'm hoping to see some new little peepers!!
