    Well today is day 20 and I can hear lots of little chirps! Hoping for a great hatch. I had an issue with one of the bators so now I only have three dozen due to hatch this weekend. But I've got two more dozen due to hatch the 28th. Hope the hatch rate is good[​IMG]

    So far twelve have hatched, but four are still drying off in the bator. Looks like it's about half and half with the silver laced Wyandotte rooster and the Olive Egger rooster. And so far all of the hatched eggs except two were blue/green. One was tan and one was brown. They are soooo cute

    I got thirteen. The incubator freaked out and hit 104 degrees Fahrenheit while I was out[​IMG] killed all the other eggs. But here's the breakdown of who hatched from what and who the parents are:
    The mothers were Easter Eggers, a Sumatra, and either a Wyandotte or a sexlink.
    The fathers were either the Silver Laced Wyandotte or the Olive Egger. Everything hatched from a green egg except three of them.
    Photos of the babies:

    I do have two+ dozen due this weekend (in four days) if y'all wanna stick around to see about that hatch[​IMG]
