    No sorry I don't have any hatching yet, but I got all my eggs to put in the bator. My last hatch was a total bust, with a 0% hatch rate.
    I have the following eggs in: a dozen RIR bantams, some white cochin bantams, porcelian d'uccles, SS Hamburgs and mixed bantam wyandottes. I also just bought a pair of button quail and threw 5 of those eggs in too. If my new hova 1588 works as well as it seems to be, I may have chicks coming out my ears! [​IMG]

    We'll see how Monday/Tuesday goes. I am expecting only about 2-3 out of 12 if I am lucky.

    Thanks Julie!
    champny-I put in 23 eggs the first time. I had 12 on day 18 that looked good. Then I had a temp spike and killed tham all. 2-3 is not that bad really-I hope they hatch for you!
