    Have 43 eggs in the bator (some of which I know are dried up). Yesterday was day 17 and NOTHING. Was starting to panic because when the box came, it was damaged and I lost 5 eggs right away. Figured I'd been incubating scrambled eggs!

    Was prepared to email my customers this morning and tell them the hatch failed, but thought I should go check just one more time. Thought I heard scratching and peeping but couldn't tell because I have chickens hatching now too. Then one hatched! As of now, I've got two but here's a pic of #1 fresh out of the shell! They look so tiny next to the chickens I've spent the past 3 days with!!!

    Wait - I lied. Still just 3. After #3 hatched, #2 climbed in its shell so I thought it was a fourth. DOH
