My hatch

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My post when I started the hatch is long gone and I have yet to figure out the search feature here.  My 14 shipped eggs went into lockdown Saturday evening.  I woke up to one chick this morning, came home to one more, and there are 7 more pipped - THAT I CAN SEE!!!!  I would say that is pretty good so far.

 

This was my first hatch using my instincts and no thermometer or hygrometer.  I'd say it is going well!!!

I agree with you!  I was so aggravated by the differences in the temps and the humidity, I just tossed them and did what I thought was right. Been hatching for 5 years now, but only had a really good hatch rate from my own eggs.  I would SOOO do this again!!!
