    I'm ordering a Brinsea mini and going to try my luck at hatching silkies later this spring. What kind of chicks are you hatching ?

    Same here!

    Got an Eco 20 from Stromberg's and an EcoGlow 20 direct from Brinsea.

    UPS apparently thought it would be helpful to deliver to Eco 20 to my ex-wife's house. [​IMG]

    A friend has given me (I don't have a rooster) some of her barnyard mix.
    They are cochin, ee, br and red sex-linked. Rooster in all but the br.
    I'm curious to see what they become.
    I wanted to have inexpensive eggs for my test run, it's good to have friends to help out.

    After candling again tonight (day 13) I have 13 of 13 growing quite nicely, the little guys and gals are moving around in there! It's funny, I find myself talking to them, little pep talks!

    Lockdown!!!!
    I got them all situated in the incubator put the cover on and just as I'm about to leave 3 of the eggs start rocking! My kids all I all jumped up and down saying "did you see that, did you see that?" I never thought I would have so much fun with an egg.
