    Day 21. On our first attempt to get eggs to hatch in an incubator we got 1 chick so far. Any suggestions or things to be awAre of?

    How did the hatch go? Generally things go ok but the most common seen issue is when the yolk sac doesn't fully absorb.

    We got a total of 7 out of 25. Which I think is good for having old eggs and our first time.
