    well im on day 20 and nothing. i wanted to candle hima nd make sure he was still ok and since i read in antoher post that as long as the bator doesnt take too long to come back to temp its ok so i did. (longest sentance ever!) he looks good still squirming around in there. he hasnt piped the air cell yet so i know we are not even close. i was jsut wanting to get some updates on how everyone else was doing today. well hope you guys are having better luck then me.

    I'm on day 19/20 and have had 5 Ameracaunas, 1 Blue Orp, and one Silkie hatch. They didn't get the memo about hatching Friday or over the weekend.

    Trust me, you have a lot more lost sleep in your future [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    But they are under a broody Cochin hen. I have some of BamaChicken's blue/splash orps hatching. I am so happy! So far I have 2 little blue orps hatched out...but I am not sure yet if they are blue or splash. From what I could tell they are pretty light colored sooo maybe splashes. And 4 Pips and one that I am still waiting on that I hope will pip during the night. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] And tomorrow is day 20 for some Blue, Black, Splash, and Barred Cochins...Half is in a bator and half is under a broody Cochin.

    Happy Hatching! [​IMG]

  10. I going into day 21. My eggs still rock and roll a little bit but no pips. I have 5 eggs that I see move a lot. The waiting is killing me too but with them moving at least I know these ones are alive and kicking so to speak. I wanted to candle but decided to leave well enough alone.
