    I couldn't be at home to watch the chicks hatch since my son's in the hospital, but just received word that 6 of the 7 eggs in my bator hatched successfully. These eggs were shipped from shelleyd2008 and I could not have been more pleased. No broken eggs in shipment! [​IMG]

    This was my first hatching and in a LG incubator. Had very few issues with temp/humidity, but did have to keep a close eye on it and adjust when room temps changed due to weather changes, etc. I can't believe I did so well! I figure 6 out of 7 ain't so bad!! [​IMG]

    My son emailed me these thumbnails earlier. Can't wait to get home and see the chicks for myself and get some better photos to share. I have one Mille fleur and 5 cochins. My second MF did not hatch.

    What cuties!! That little cochin has a lot of white on it, looks like it will have very good mottling!!

    And 6 of 7 is better than good, that is great!! [​IMG] I don't think I have ever had a hatch that good, even on my own eggs! Tell me ALL your secrets!! [​IMG]
