    Its day 18 for my dual hatch, 5 eggs under a broody EE and 14 in my bator.

    I set them both up with eggs the same day, but the broody started about 2 hours before I put eggs in the bator.

    We have a pip under the broody, peeps are nice and loud!

    Total of 5 hatched under my broody, now we have 3 pips in the bator!

    Checked again to be sure but it is only day 19.
    Its been hot here, 95+. Maybe thats the reason for the early hatch.

    Quote:So much so that I'm going to give her the babies that hatch in the bator too.

    We have 4 pips and 1 hatched chick in the bator.

    That's awesome, Rooster!!!! You're giving me the itch to fire up my bator again, but it's just too hot to get eggs shipped her right now. . . Good luck with the rest of your hatch!!
