    I have 18 eggs due to tomorrow, Wednesday, February 20th. It's the first time my family will be hatching eggs alone. All the times we have hatched eggs, friends were close by to watch and help. Any advice?

    I too have eggs hatching the 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd this is my third time .....
    1. dont touch them they will come out when they are ready.
    2. make shure humidity is good.
    3. If they dont hatch tomorow ....dont freek out, give them a few days.
    4. make shure your brooder is ready with the light on before they hatch so you can regulate the temp.
    5. allow them to dry completely before you transfer them to the brooder.
    6. have fun and enjoy! and keep me posted!
