    This is the craziest Hatch I've ever had. It was due on the 22 and 23. But I have had them hatching everyday since than. No kidding. Last night another was hatched and one is pipping. Geez...how in the world? So I have all different sizes of chicks. [​IMG] I still have 5 more in the bator, so I candled those. I still see movement in a few of them. Hmmm.....

    I KNOW what you mean.. I have had chicks hatching on day 22 (Thursday) and just when I thought I would clean out the remaining eggs.. I hear a peep.. on day 24..waited ALL DAY and it finally pipped about 9 last night.. wokeup a hour ago.. no progress. Already had one die in the shell so decided to help this one out a bit.. it is now drying in the incubator..we will see how it does. The sole chick born in the wee hours of Christmas day is smaller than its hatchmates that are a day older..
