    I set 24 jumbo coturnix eggs in my ancient 1976 Lyon Turn-X 'bator and today is day 17 of incubation!

    I candled on day 12 and got rid of 2 glowing eggs but left the remaining 22 dark eggs.

    One of the eggs was pipped when I noticed at 4am (lol) and is a slightly bigger pip now at 8:30am. I'm very excited for these babies! My last hatch in this 'bator was 100%. I will keep you all posted! And will for sure add pics when I have babies. [​IMG]
