    Hi All! Happy to be here.

    This is my first hatch since I was a little girl. I have two kids of my own and passing along the amazing experience to by kids.

    We have 12 eggs (6 Auracana & 6 Golden Comet) and they are doing great. Sunday night I candled a few and I even saw one moving! We are very excited to see if any hatch on the 23rd of March.

    We are in our 19th day, and the incubator is giving off a different smell. It is not a bad smell, just different. I remember this smell from when I was younger and we always had successful hatches.

    Has anyone else experienced this change?
