    i did, it was my first time hatching eggs, so i wasnt all that successfull, plus i got my eggs through the mail so that probably didnt help.

    i ended up with three chickens, but i dont remember how many eggs i had, i took alot out that didnt seem to be growing becuase i only wanted a couple chickens.

    i used a hovabator and hand turned them, i wore doctor gloves when handling them cus i heard the oil/dirt on your hands can clog the pores in the eggs.

    Hello, I hand turned 55 eggs 2 times a day for 3 weeks and 34 of them hatched, they are doing fine. It was the first time in years I had done this so I was happy with the results. Good Luck with yours. The instructions with my bater said to just wash your hands with antibacterial soap before handling eggs. Your Chicken Friend Moon [​IMG]
