    Hatch #3 was another successful hatch. I had 3 chicks hatch and there are 2 more eggs that I set a day later so they should hatch anytime. I do have a question regarding the color, will try to get a better picture. I know for sure the middle one is a cameo and the one on the right is an IB, I just don't know what the one on the left is. My guess is that its either an IB Pied or IB split to White because it has some white wing feathers that are kind of visible in the picture.
    I am up to 12 chicks right now! I have never had this many before. Also have 5 eggs due to hatch in a couple weeks and have 10 eggs to set.

    You are making me so excited about hatching peachicks!!! Cant wait until mine hatches. I dont know anything about the peachick's color sorry, but I have a question for you. Do you manualy turn your incubator or do you have the autoturn cradle? I manually turn mine and the water from the bottoms spills out, and it frusterates me [​IMG] have you ever had this problem?

    I have the auto-turn cradle. I don't have any problems with water spilling out. Do you fill the channel up all the way? I fill it up until there is about 1/2 inch left from the top.​

    I just fill it up a little at a time until my hygrometer reads 60% then I leave it and fill it up again when it starts dropping. I can keep the tempature just fine but not the humiduty .

    Showing white flight means it is split to white it could be a dark pied also but need to know what the parents are.

    The father is an IB male split to white and cameo, and the mother is either a cameo hen or IB hen (she has white flights so I am guessing she is split to white?)
