    Hi All... anyone want to share their Thanksgiving Hatch? So far i have 2 EE's and 1 Lav Orp poultry chicks!!! Hoping for more to hatch, but the incubator has been iffy since i found a week ago my temp was too low from cooler temps in the house. I lost several chicks from that incubation error..and the few that hatched had leg issues too, and we lost them. One of the 4 chicks that was ok made it i had this bad feeling these would not make it or hatch, and was very surprised this AM to pips again. What a great Thanksgiving surprise!!! [​IMG]

    I have some early bloomers! 12 mixed eggs are due tomorrow and they are already pipping!

    We have 1 pip (pretty much a zip) and another pip!

    I know that one is coming out of a silkie egg [dont know dad(4 possible dads)] and another is coming out of a light brown egg.

    I am very jealous... very nice to have them on Turkey day! Mine are due Saturday morning but I still have a feeling I might get a few early. I have one silkie egg that is wiggling pretty good but no pip yet...
