    This is my 4th hatch. I wasn't supposed to incubate anymore this year [​IMG], but couldn't resist some Ameraucana eggs from a very nice BYC member who lives closeby. I've been trying to get some blue egg layers, but keep getting roosters. I'm really hoping for some hens this time! [​IMG]

    I'm going into lockdown Saturday, the 6th, at around 11 pm. I had set mine 7/15 at 11 pm. When did you set yours?

    Oh and I'm down to 8 eggs now, one of them must have been an early quitter or not fertilised. There isn't any veins or anything so.. But the others have pretty much filled up the egg now! [​IMG] it's so hard being patient! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm only 9 hours behind you, so we're pretty close. I expect hatchday to be Tuesday the 9th, but they'll likely start pipping on the evening of the 8th. Can't wait! [​IMG]
