    I am just now having one of them pipped in my fishtank at 8:40 am this morning.. I will post a pic soon as my camera charges up abit more. They are 2 days late..LOL..Wish me luck cuz all 18 out of 18 were fertile before I put them in the fishtank.[​IMG]

    These eggs I picked up myself are from pasofinafarm-Melissa
    Golden Cuckoo Marans and Salmon Faverolles.

    edit-can't count..lol..

    I imagine if you already have an aquarium set-up (most likely for reptiles), you would have all you need to hatch an egg. Heat rock, lid, add some sponges for humidity...taa daa!
