I purchased a dozen BCM eggs from bargain here on BYC. they arrived the morning of 9/25, I set them in the bator before bed. All eggs arrived safely and very well packaged. I was pleased with the egg color too. Today (10/13) marks day 18 and lockdown has begun! I cleaned out the hatcher from the duck hatch last weekend. I put them in this morning and am now just waiting on the peeps, pips and zips! Of the 12 eggs I started with 6 have made it to lockdown. I had 2 with detached air cells, 2 with blood rings and 2 more that looked like early quitters. The six that did make it are egg #'s 2,3,4,8,9 and 10. The eggs are really washed out in this picture so you can't see but I have the numbers written on the top of each egg so I can easily see during the hatch. I'll update as things progress. I'm anxious to see how this turns out, first complete hatch with a turner! In the past I've turned by hand. A few hatches ago I tried using an egg carton to hatch them in and I found I quite preferred this method so I'm using it again this time. I also took a que from iamcuriositycat and drew a pencil line around the air cell to help predict where they might pip--that's also been helpful the last few hatches.
