    Is anyone else hatching today? hopefully I will have 3 chicks shortly. It is so hard not to go out and peek! Hopefully my other broody hatches one, she has been setting sooo long. Her first eggs werent any good so I had to replace them. I hope it is soon for her.

    i had my first one hatch at about 2:45 am today and was i shocked when i looked in the bator and seen my black copper marans egg hatched a yellow chick. went straight to ebay and looked at the description again and any extras may be wheaton marans or black marans. i have 2 more eggs pipped.

    I have 2 eastern wild turkeys on day 27 in one bator. Bator #2 has some little Serama eggs on day 20 and in the Dickey hatching tray on day 20 is a few cochins, speckled sussex and jersey giants! And not 1 pip yet......... [​IMG]

    I have 2 bantam hens sharing 10 RIR eggs. I saw that one was piped and chirping last night! Can't wait to get off of work to see what has happened!

    Awesome! my hatch isn't going very well. We will see what happens. Mama has been trying to eat them as they hatch. I lost one yesterday, one is out but weak and two are working on it. I worry that the two she ate the shell off of will be too banged up to make it:(

    I'm sitting at work getting phone updates from my wife and kids. It's killing me not to be there. [​IMG]

    Another 2 hours I will be home.

    joyful wishing you the best of luck with your hatch. I still have 4 eggs left and we are on day 22 and none of them have pipped yet. so i will just sit back and keep checking with my little light looking for pips. lol

    I have 3 cute little mille fleur chicks![​IMG] They all seem to be doing well despite momma pecking the shells off and causing them to dry out. They all needed a little help out because the membrane was tough, but they are doing well!
