So, I would say that was a great hatch with all the odds against those babies. I will assist the remaining eggs if needed. It is my nature to assist those in need, esp tiny defenseless babies.
Will follow-up with pictures when they are finished hatching and can be removed from hatcher.
I am so happy to hear that!! With shipped eggs 50% hatch rate is great!! So you really, really did a good job!!
Can't wait to see the pics! Tag me if you can so I don't miss them!
