    Hello all, alittle over a month ago I tried to hatch my 1st batch of eggs in more than 15 years, I had set 28 eggs, 6 were clear and I only had 4 babies hatch & survive. Needless to say I was disappointed [​IMG]
    Yesterday I set 10 eggs from my bbreds and tonight will set 12 from pumpkinpup and tonight I have borrowed an egg turner.
    I think humidity may have been a factor in my bad hatch last time, and so I did buy a hygrometer for this batch. Please I need all your support and prayer vibes to make this hatch a success [​IMG]

    I will be rooting for you! I am on my 2nd hatch for this season. I have been on a hiatus for a year and it feels good to be hatching again.
    Please let us know how it goes [​IMG]

    Ah! Me too! It's been about 10 years since I hatched anything! My first attempt last month of 8 was a very horrible bloody hatch. I wasn't going to do it again but well, you know, the 2 little chicks that did make it need some friends after all! hahaha (my excuse!) I set 14 in the bator yesterday with my fingers crossed.

    Good luck to you! [​IMG]

    Sending more good hatching vibes your way!

    I am getting ready to set 2 dozen EE eggs, which I am not even sure are fertile. Its only my 4th hatch attempt and my first 3 didn't go very well. But I am going to keep trying til I get a successful hatch darnit!
