    [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]I bought Easter Egger eggs from Atlchick on Jan. 22, 2010. I set them in the Brinsea Eco 20 that evening.[/FONT]
    Here are the eggs:

    Here are the eggs just before lockdown on Feb. 9. If you look real close,
    You can see 3 pips.
    [​IMG]
    The first 2 chicks. The dark one hatched about 9pm on 2/11. The yellow one
    overnight.
    [​IMG]
    All eight. There were 4 in the bator the morning of 2/12 and the other 4 hatched
    before 10 AM.
    [​IMG]
    Saturday Surprise. Another chick hatched 27 hours after the others. Here he is
    in the bator. #9
    [​IMG]
    And in with the others. He's the solid dark one next to the brooder wall. The other
    dark one is #8.
    [​IMG]
    Temporary home while brooder is being cleaned.
    [​IMG]
    Moved to a bigger brooder (old aquarium) on 2/16. Doubled the floor space.

    Checking out the new digs.

    Some individual pictures at one week old.

    3/19 - five weeks old. In the brooder cage on the grass. They fill it up.
    [​IMG]
    Worf - we think this one is a roo
    [​IMG]
    Gandulf - another roo probably
    [​IMG]
    Yeller - who is now all white
    [​IMG]
    Goth - named by my granddaughter, used to be solid gray/black
    [​IMG]
    An unnamed one, there are 2 more unnamed with this coloring and one white/black one
    [​IMG]
    They are moving into a bigger cage soon. The brooder is much too small for 8 6 week old chicks.
