    Came home from work and found 3 new babies resting and drying off in the 'bator! [​IMG] Also three more pipped and another one has started to zip! [​IMG] They are so darn cute! Cutest chickies ever! Soon as I get my camera going (probably tomorrow) I'll post pics! [​IMG] I feel like passing out cigars! [​IMG] Now if only the rest hatch out! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    just checked again. There are 13 drying off now! [​IMG] And I'm sure I saw 3 more pipping! [​IMG] Is it possible that all 26 will hatch? [​IMG] And when can I move them out of the incubator? If I move them now, will it hurt the ones who haven't made thier appearance yet? Or should I just wait to do anything until tomorrow? In case you can't tell, this is my first time doing this! As for breed, A friend's father gave me the eggs, all he said was that they were BB's. I'm not sure what that is? [​IMG] Any ideas? They are REALLY small eggs, about the size of a quail egg, but they are chickens.

    Quote:Don't open the bator. Humidity will drop and maybe cause problems for the others. They can stay in there for at least 24 hours. I would wait. Its hard I know!!! [​IMG]
