    Any other St. Paddy's Day Hatchers?

    So putting the eggs in lockdown tonight....hoping for some little chickies soon! Not sure what my final count in lockdown will be...17 have made it so far but I'm pretty sure several of those haven't developed. Still have some olive eggers, easter eggers, lavender ameraucanas and one lone welsummer.

    First hatch...fingers crossed![​IMG]

    So now I keep opening it to let out more humidity. I sure hope at least SOME hatch.

    I walked in my bedroom tonight and heard cheeping! And two of the eggs have pips. I am so anxious to see if they hatch out. My humidity has been too high and I've had a hard time getting it down to 70.

    Hoping these little peepers come out! Really wish they weren't in my bedroom so i wouldn't be anxiously waiting to hear more peeps. I don't know how often they normally chirp in there.
