    So my first batch of 19 eggs are in the hatcher and we are on the begining of day 18 and 4 are already rocking!
    [​IMG] Is this possible so early?
    Is anyone else hatching at the same time?
    I also have a batch to hatch as well on this Friday/Sat and then again on Monday. I candled all the eggs and they all have babies that are just moving away!

    I have 11 of Jodys and 16 of Lisas eggs too that are doing really well.
    The batch though that is about to hatch are mutts....but gosh...this hatching thing is just so amazing to watch,
    expecially when they are already rocking! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I put 11 in the hatcher this morning....
    This is my first hatch....I think I have 9 that look pretty good....two are questionable.
    I have learned alot over the past 18 all I can do is wait.
    Best wishes for a good hatch!

    I have a batch of black austrolorp, rir and silver laced wyandottes due tomorrow (Mon), however the first chick hatched this morning. A black austrolorp! [​IMG] And I see two other pips. I am worried tho....the humidity is too high, they are hatching early (which means incubation temp was high).. [​IMG] This is not going as planned. Looks like I have to assess my instruments from that incubator again. Fingers crossed for everyone. [​IMG] Good luck with your hatches.

    Forgot I've also got some of my Marans in there too.

    How about 5 days? Mine should start hatching on Thursday. Some of the chicks are destined to be stars. They will be used in a scene of the Wizard of Oz the local highschool is putting on.
