Thanks! These were my own eggs - it was touch and go for a little bit as the (BRAND NEW!) R-Com incubator decided it just didn't feel like maintaining humidity a few times during lock down. Added old school wet sponges, etc., and it was ok.
I'm in baby chick cuteness overload right now - and I have some shipped eggs that are 9 days behind these (not sure how successful that hatch will be). This is so addictive, I don't see how you don't all have baby chicks spilling out of every cabinet and drawer and the pockets of your clothes like tribbles!!!!
BTW, they seem way more comfy/happy under the MHP than chicks were under the EcoGlow...
