    today is day 18 on my ameraucana eggs. I bought them on ebay so keep your:fl!! I hope they do better than my last hatch. Out of 18 delaware eggs only 4 hatched 7 were fully formed in shell but dead 2 were quitters and the rest were clear. then on my white rocks I set 8 eggs 2 hatched and the rest were dead in the shell fully formed. I have kept everything perfect this time I know for sure. But these are shipped eggs so I don't know.I also have red star eggs in my new Brinsea octagon 20 advance. it has auto temp and humidity I am going to candle them tomorrow to check and see how they are doing it will be day 8.

    Skip and I just pulled out the turner from our bator. We're patiently awating 3 Red Golden Pheasant babies ([​IMG] about the "patiently"). Going to spend the weekend finishing up their pen (hopefully).

    Best wishes on your hatch, chickabator! [​IMG]

    Today is Day 18 for me. I just culled two non-starters and I have 2 moving like crazy in the shell, the other 12 are a gamble. I just got the temp/humidity set so now the waiting game.

    Good luck. I'll be checking in to see how yours do to! [​IMG]

    Good luck [​IMG]

    Mine are due on Friday. I candled yesterday and took out 7 that were clear. I have 5 more that are questionable and will make the "final" decision on Day 18. I've got blue/black/splash orps, RIR's and blue/black and cuckoo silkies. This waiting is awful. I've cleaned the house, checked the temp and humidity, done laundry, checked the temp and humidity, gone outside and talked to the 52 I've got outside, checked the temp and humidity, been on here and ebay looking for what I want to hatch next, checked the temp and humidity, really thinking about ordering a 1588 and will probably cave before the day is over, and it will go on like this till next Friday.
