    [​IMG]Welcome! Since they are your eggs and therefore didn't travel very far and I am sure you will hatch enough to share [​IMG]

    I have mine set up the same way as LilChickens and it works out well.

    It occurred to me that my SF shipped eggs shipped on a Sat, arrived on Mon. and went in the incubator on Thu vs. the Cochin shipped eggs which shipped on Mon, arrived on Wed and went in on Thu.

    SF eggs - 11/11 viable
    Coc eggs - 7/11 viable (2 clears - 2 blood rings)

    Do you think it's possible that the extra time resting made that difference?

    SF came from FL
    Coc from Ohio

    Just saw that the fun and funky is 10% off... so it's $20.95 and free shipping for 3 eggs...

    I'd say it helped to have them sit longer, however I'm sure the travel scenario of both eggs also made the difference. Maybe the Coc had a harder shipment, or it could be fertility issues, or even genetics of the parents. Either way, you have 18 fluffy butts growing!

    I did another weigh and candled today to be sure why air cells were like. Still really small air cells so I am keeping my humidity closer to 30 today and tomorrow. I've been told not to candle during days 11-14 so I will check again on day 15 for final tweaking.

    I did take more time looking at eggs and have now confirmed 29 out of 33 eggs growing so I took the 4 out because they were obvious clears.

    Ah man, :/ :rolleyes: My favorite juvenile cockerel just crowed for the first and second time today. I was hoping he would wait until after 10 weeks or so... I haven't had a chance to get a no crow collar for him yet.
