These are a mix of RI reds and Barred rocks. This is the first time I've hatched out my own eggs in 15 years. The 1st time I tried it, it was a disaster. This time I used my incubator and a friends turner. Plus I got a thermometer with a humidity reading. Right now I've got 2 chix out, and 3 piping. This is still very early. Friday was suppossed to be hatch day 21. I wonder if the eggs started to develop before I got them. A
friend gave them to me. These are all full sized birds

I set them on friday 2/27. We appear to have a problem with one of the chix. Part of his body seems to be hanging out of it. I dont think this one will make it.I was prepared for something like this. After all mother nature isnt always perfect. No pic yet. I dont want to disturb them too much
