    Finally! My chicks have hatched and they are gorgeous. Why did they take so long to hatch? Some are STILL hatching. 2 more to go and we'll have lucky 13!

    My first thought why the hatch was later is the temperature might have been a little low. Not all thermometers are accurate. I have several thermometers and some read high and others lower, so I just try to get it as close as I can to my ideal temp. I try to keep it around 100 degrees.
