    I am hoping my young rooster did his job too, time will tell. I'm thinking he probably hasn't been successful with all his girls, he has his favorites. Go figure. And the fact they all lay blue/blue green eggs, I don't know whose egg belongs to who. Luck of the draw I guess.

    so far so good, I think.

    temps holding not bad, I did error a bit, but, it's not too hot , fluctuating at about 99.1 degrees.

    humidity is at 43%, looks like I might need to add some water soon.
    It's not a good idea to let the water channel dry up completely, I would assume. or not?

    hopefully some are developing. I am pretty confident that some won't be fertile, etc. so I will be quite happy with 20 of the 40 hatching, anything more will be a bonus.

    9 days till candling, hahaha, wow, it's only been a day. apparently it's going by very slowly.........

    If you are hatching at school it's best to set on tuesday or wednesday. that way if they are early or late the kids can watch them. I have hatched at school before. 325 kids got to hold their first chick. They loved it. Have fun with them
