Got 18 green-blue eggs from emrldgrn1 3 weeks ago. All were fertile and started to develop. One stopped and the rest made it to hatch day today which was day 20. Two never pipped. The rest are drying in the Bator and will be brooder bound shortly. Araucana roo x ameraucana hen cross so quite a few rumpless ones. Heres some pics.

I am too inexperienced to have secrets. Just was fortunate to get very good eggs and have a binsea 20 advance to incubate them in. Did not mention that these came clear across the country. IMHO if most eggs were as good as this batch most of us would have excellent hatch rates whenever eggs were not xrayed or otherwise brutalized by shippers.

Wow! That is a fantastic looking batch of babies. They look so big and healthy and "thick" in a good sense that is... congrats longranger, any pics of the eggs they hatched from? I like it that they are all different color. Variety is the spice of life!

Onthespot the eggs were routine Light to medium blue and green. I threw them away during the hatch. Those guys were coming out like popcorn and the Brinsea 20 with it's many virtues is not spaceous. Had to make room. On the plus side the small size of the brinsea allows you to go in without worrying about temperature and humidity. It returns to the desired numbers very quickly.
