    Sounds like you have a lot of chicklets on the way =) I'm not even sure where I belong in regard to hatching threads. Mine are due 10/22, 10/23, 10/24 and 10/27 (approximately) and the other two clutches just hatched out yesterday and the day prior. Sooo...don't know where I go for the others :) lol Either way -- good luck with your hatchings and I hope you get a great group of people!

    The kids getting into the coolerbator has just given me more reason to get to work on the new incubator which btw already has a lock on the door :)

    I'm up....

    I just started 12 Marans eggies last night. I got a little giant and a turner on Craigslist.. I also added a computer fan

    i had a hard time telling which was the pointy end of the eggs... hope I got it right, I found it was easier to tell
    by feeling the eggs than looking..
