    I started with 27 eggs, yes they were my eggs, not shipped. They sat on the counter for a week and a half before I gathered enough to incubate. Anyway, 1 was clear, 1 bloodring, so out of I guess 26 good eggs and 24 viable chicks, is my hatch rate 24/26X100% ? Anyone know?
    I'm getting 92% hatch rate, is this correct? [​IMG]

    That's what I get. If you divide 24 x 26 it comes out 92%
    [​IMG] Good job.
    I just got 15 silkie & crosses to hatch out of 17 from Marie_Martin so I think 88% on shipped eggs is fantastic. [​IMG]
