    I've got 14 due on May 9th [​IMG] !(15, but I think 1 has expired?[​IMG]). I have a feeling they'll be early a day or two [​IMG] since I kept my temps a hair high [​IMG] ....Hope our hatches are a success [​IMG] Good Luck!![​IMG]

    I'm doing my first test hatch in a cooler bator and if anything hatches they are due on the 10th. I used little pullet eggs because my girls just started laying. I have 2 left out of 8 that are doing something, but I can't figure out what I'm seeing when I candle. I just see the air cell, a dark mass, and a space at the pointy end of the egg. They are brown eggs. Maybe my light isn't bright enough or something. I'm really curious what's going on inside of my eggs!

    Yes! May 10th for me!!!! This is my first broody hatch and we are very excited! We tried to candle on day 7 and didn't see anything. I thought maybe it was too early or maybe the light wasn't bright enough. May try again but don't want to mess with her too much.
