    Woo-hoo!! These guys are in the TX-7, 14 shipped eggs, down to 10. Two pips so far. They haven't been terribly stressed, but the air cells look suspect...maybe it's just cuz I can finally SEE the air cells, with the new 90-lumen flashlight. This is just a great little bator.

    Will get pictures posted (camera is functioning, at last).

    I'm putting a dozen Lady Amherst pheasants on it in a week, for a friend.

    SEVEN out of 10 have pipped. And of the three left, one has pipped the air cell. (The TX has a clear dome, and I can candle from the outside, with this super duper flashlight!!

    I just love the TX, so consistent. When one starts to hatch, they ALL do.

    I'm pleased with this hatch, you always want 100%, but almost impossible with shipped eggs. 7 out now, dry and fluffed out. Super colorful! 8th one pipping, today is Day 21. 2 remaining, can't see any movement in their air cells, but will give them until late tonight.
