Well as I said in a previous post I came home to the incubator dry and the humidity at 10% and to my surprise an egg pipping! I was taken by surprise because it was not time or I guess I just lost track of time and didn't think I was getting that close to Hatch day!!

Well one started to pip and when I woke up this morning one had hatched out, but the one that had pipped hadn't made any progress. Against my better judgement I inspected the egg and it ws stuck and like glued in the egg and so I helped it. NO BLOOD, it was ready! The poor chick was stuck in there because the membranes dried out. I pipped it the rest of the way around and removed the top of the egg and with in a few minutes the chick got out and got up and started to try and walk around! It was fine!! YAY. I left for work and one other egg was pipping. I had a total of 11 eggs in the bator. Old English (3), Silkies (3) naken necks (2) and RIR (3). So far 2 old english hatched out and one silkie had pipped. I am staying at my moms house because I have to work, but dh is going home and will inform me if more hatched!

thanks! yes I got my humidity up to 55-59%. I did that immediately because I looked in the window and saw the humidity at 10%. When I opened the lid to add more water I heard a peeping! I was caught off gaurd because I had been gone for 36 hours working (I work 12 hour shifts in a town 30 miles away so a lot of times I stay at my moms house so I can save on gas) I came home and found my eggs hatching! I was excited becase usually time drags on and on and on.

My seb. goslings are due to hatch out around the 20th!!! Oh I am so excited!
