    I can't believe our success. Ordered 1 doz. eggs from Double R. We received 14. One was clear and one stopped developing early. Even after my goof up on counting days, all 12 hatched. This is how they were shipped.

    4 babys were out by the time I went to bed.

    Took this picture this morning.

    One hour ago all were out. One is very very small, I don't know if it will make it, but we are keeping our fingers crossed. The lone egg in the upper corner is one of our buff's egg my daughter threw in a day later.
    I am done with hatching for awhile. I need some sleep.

    Also, I should thank MissPrissy for helping me build my incubator. Couldn't have done it without you. [​IMG]

    Congratulations. Yes, I've had good shipping and hatching results from Double-R in the past too.

    That foam is cool! I got eggs 'once upon a time' with that stuff (unfortunately, they weren't all intact).
