    I have eggs due July 5th!!!!!!! This will be my second ever attempt at hatching, and I've got 49 eggs in the bator [​IMG]
    When I came home with all the eggs and had them all out on the counter to mark them my bf was like holy crap, that's a lot of eggs [​IMG] We only had 9 the first time.

    I've got RIR, Mixed Wyandottes, Marans, Ameraucauna, Cochin Bantam, Polish, and Silkie eggs in there...

    Can't wait to see what we get.

    I have to wait a couple more days to candle the eggs...Hopefully I get a good turn out. When I received the shipped eggs, 2 were broken....so that makes me worry a little bit!! [​IMG]

    I have pheasants hatching on the 7th. I normally stick around during the hatch but I not knowing booked a salmon fishing trip the same day. I figure that the chicks will do alright in the hatcher until I get back home. [​IMG] I'll only be gone for half the day.[​IMG]

    How big do yours get? I have 2 and I thought they'd get bigger than they are. Like height...etc..
