    Georgetown, a little north of Charleston, got 24 inches. We're right at $100K damage with 5 inches. 17 is unimaginable.
    2/10? That's worse than my average. You should be able to pick out a pretty darn good roo, though.
    I have a cuckoo Marans that flees the nest as soon as they pip, but with my blu... Hands off approach I didn't find them until it was too late

    Thank you everyone for the support and comments about the hatch! It was wonderful!!

    I have to ask you to please give me the details on this vent-staining you mentioned. I'm thinking one thing but not sure. Sounds like it might be useful for me in spring, sinceI'll have a few colors till I sell some off.

    Awesome. Love Baby!


    :lau

    Oh no! At least you caught them in time and have them warm & hatching!!

    I may have missed it on this thread during the storm, but I read somewhere else that you hatched 8 for 9? Shipped, too? Do we get to have our first In Ya Window parade?

    Yes!! I locked down 9 eggs (all that developed locked down) and on the night of day 19, I had 3 pips. Woke up to those same 3 pips and my heart sank. I thought "here we ago again, the rest are going to die in lockdown" and then through the day, and the next day and the next day, I kept getting more pips! 2 wrong enders, 1 hatched perfectly fine by itself but the other had totally smooshed it's head into the poop in the pointy end and was stuck, so he needed help. But all 8 are healthy, eating, drinking, no leg or feet issues. I would have been happy with 5! Lol!
