    I set 23 eggs in my homemade incubator. Out of 23 set eggs 21 hatched. I wish I could get my pictures of them to post. I think its because i have a cheap cell phone. But all 21 chicks are doing great. I am not sure what the breeds are. They are suppose to be pure bred. I will have to ask them next time i get eggs from them. Have them write it down so i dont forget again. But i do remember them saying buff orp.

    That is impressive. I put 9 eggs in my homade 'bater a while back and I have now moved two of them to a real 'bater due to trmperature issues. Of the two I moved, I really only think one is developing properly. The lesson for me was not to rush, I didn't have the 'bater really dialed in to start with. Anyways, congratulations!
