    I can't look at pics like these. I've got 16 birds outside, half of which are laying, and I haven't a rooster to fertilize them yet... Dang the luck!

    Congrats on the hatch! I love babies...

    Ok. I'm up to 8 chicks now, but 2 eggs didn't make it. The 2 eggs had a beck sticking out of it and no movement so I took it out of the bator. I did break open there eggs to make sure. And yep there dead, bummer. Weird those 2 were the first to pip. I have a few more to come. [​IMG]

    Hi Hippichick, It's from Melinda. And here are the results, 8 healthy chicks,
    7 formed dead chicks, 2 clear eggs. The 7 formed dead chick was my fault, I opened the bator to helps some chicks out of there eggs. And the temperature and humidity started to fluctuate, sooo. I did notice some improvements I can make to my bator. So if I hatch again, I won't have those problems again.

    Here's the pic of my 8 babies.

    Hippichick, Did you hatch here eggs too? And how many made it?


    I have to say Melinda's eggs were really good besides the 2 unfertile and well packaged, she sent 17 eggs. If Melinda visits here I want to thank you for the eggs.

    You did way better than I did. She sent me 28 total because my last hatch didn't do so well. And out of the 28, only 3 hatched. I don't know what went wrong with my hatch. I opened several of the eggs that didn't hatch, and the chicks were fully formed. I had candled at 18 days, and they were looking great. I had maybe 2 or 3 clear eggs out of the 28, so her eggs are fertile. And the packaging was good. It's got to be something I did. Anyway, congrats on the hatch. Happy for you![​IMG]
