    Thanks so much

    Shoot, I went ahead and candled the 6th egg.. and tapped it, and listened.. no movement, no sound.. and got nervous about exploding eggs... so I just chucked it..

    Now thinking.. what if... what if.. it was fine!!!! since I am a newbie

    that could have been a 6/6 hatch rate.. eh????

    What kind of incubator do you have? Glad you had a good hatch, that is great.

    Quote:I had eggs shipped last time / from another breeder.. and incubated 10/ over stuffed my (Brisnea mini advance)
    and 7 of those hatched.. they were also shipped eggs, in freezing cold weather

    I let my eggs sit up, for 24 hours.. and then lay them down in my incubator..
    I have my incubator set and running before I add the eggs

    and do nothing.. LOL

    okay time before last time, opened up incubator to help an egg having trouble

    I am a total newbie,
    My first hatch was December 22, 2010
    and then Last night


    AND YES, I just placed another order, my dh is going to kill me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LMAO
    if I never post again, you all may need to call the police..hehehe
    another order.. of bantam TRUE~amerecauna eggs

    Lets see how they do
    If all goes well... man, no doubt the brisnea is the bomb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
