    Hi all,

    First time poster be gentle!

    Set 12 eggs on Friday in our Brinsea Oct 20 with Autoturn cradle. We had 3 due to hatch last week from our RCOM 3 but without success - 2 dead in shell, 1 a quitter.

    We candled today, things looked generally ok - could see evidence of a few blood vessel and dark colourations. The kids are coming back after school on Friday for a second candling session!

    Fingers crossed this time!

    Well here I am back after 20 days!

    We had our first pip at 6am yesterday morning and pips continued throughout the day - last night around 11pm we had our first one hatch! Not seen them live yet, we watched the whole thing on our webcam

    You can see quite a few have hatched out now, Im off into school to see them in an hour or so!
