    I have 12 Blue/black/splash Aneraucana eggs that went into lockdown yesterday, tonight I heard peeping. Just a few minutes ago had the first chick hatch! Hope that is a good sign of a decent hatch on shipped eggs for once! I kept the humidity at 25-30% until lockdown and then at 65% so far.... 1 out and hopefully 11 more to go. This one is very light gray so not sure but I am assuming a splash? Lord pray for pullet! LOL Out of my recent hatches I have been averaging 70% cockerels.... [​IMG]
