    today is day 19 for my frizzle cochin eggs and we have one little pip that i can see!!!!!

    these 18 eggs were 2 1/2 weeks old when i set them and have survived two power outages!

    wish me luck ill post pics when they start to hatch
    UPDATE:::
    a total of 8 out of 19 hatched, alot of them pipped the air cell then died, and two died right after pipping, im thinking it was the power outage on day 18, or maybe it was an unlucky batch since the eggs were old, i have higher hopes for the 9 eggs due friday, although they expierienced both power outages, they were at earlier stages and were all fresh when i set them, i set 8 more today in the same bator, and will continue setting a small clutch every weekend since my seramas started laying today!

    Congrats! Can't wait to see the pictures! I seem to always have one or two ambitious babies that start to hatch 24 hours or so before the rest. Good luck with the hatch. [​IMG]
