First time incubator hatchers, set our eggs on Thursday 3/3 at 6 pm (18 buckeye and 12 ameraucana) .. and we have a broody setting on 9 eggs since 3/2 2:40 am - I was woken from a sound sleep to a chirping - only to find that we had an early hatch! Today we would be going into lock down (day 18)... We quickly removed the automatic egg turner and now are wide awake running around the house trying to figure out what to do!!! I think we are going to take this baby out to our broody hen "Maggie" before sunrise and see if she'll take the baby. What do you think? Here's a picture - taken right after we were woken - see that the auto-egg turner is still in - we took it out immediately following this picture.
