    I have six eggs in the incubator and its day 19. I had one pip late last night and the others must have pipped early this morning. They peep now and then, but none have started to zip yet? I just wanted to know if this is normal!! [​IMG]

    All six hatched by this morning [​IMG] One araucana cross, two black chicks and three yellows! The last one that hatched died this morning though (one of the little black ones) [​IMG] I have know clue why? But the others are doing good, however I have know clue on what most of them are, I got the eggs from a friend![​IMG]
    Not a great picture, but here they are!
