    We set some OEGB shipped eggs and I threw in some EE eggs from our own back yard. They are in lock down and due to hatch on the evening of the 30th. I am surprised any are alive. We have had lots of problems with temp and humidity in "Big Bertha". She is an old metal Brower that was given to us and holding perferctly all the way up until we actually put eggs in her. Figures!!! Well. Today one of the EE eggs hatched. I don't have much hatching experience but never had an egg hatch a whole 2 days early. Whaddya think?

    They will hatch a little early if the temperature is a little high.
