    On my first hatch I figured out my temp and humidity fluctuations were largely due to my automatic thermostat. I payed no attention to the fact that my house went down to 65 degrees at night and only up to 68 degrees during the warmest times of the day. :he. It wasn't until day 15 that I realized why I was babysitting the Bator. Not sure if this could be a factor but just a thought! Lol.

    I'm sure at this early point they are fine.

    Thank you! They are all buff Orpington... Well actually one of my seven girls is a buff rock so they'll be a few rock Orpington crosses but she's my very favorite chicken so I don't mind. :) What are you hatching?

    This round I'm hatching buff Orpingtons, EE (Ameraucana hen & bresse cock), some Cream leg bar and Isla Brown mixes. So who knows what I'm going to get! So far 29 are growing!
