    I set a batch of eggs in my Hova Bator on the 22nd/23rd and I have yet to see a pip. I am getting SO anxious now. I did pull one out and I heard a faint peep, so at least one has pipped the sac. Wish me luck! Send some good hatching Karma, PLEASE! I started with 46 and due to a few fertility issues, ended up with only 13 making it to lockdown.
    I will post results. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The fun has begun! I had a few pipped this morning, now I have lost one that was almost there-a Buckeye [​IMG] But 2 Buckeyes have hatched and one Splash Orpington. There are still some that are pipped and the bantams should be coming tomorrow is they are only a day behind like they should be. I won't feel a sign of relief though until I know all of them are done.
    I did coach the first one out though, I kept peeping and whistling in the air holes on top to cheer it on until it was all of the way out.

    And the fun is over....for now.
    I ended up with 1 Splash Orpington and 3 Buckeyes.
    Better luck next time.
