    The 4 eggs I put in the bator because they are supposed to be behind the other hatch under my broody are rocking. I went to check the temp tonight, and one egg especially was a rockin,candled today and they were very full eggs but didn't see any internal pips! By my calculations lockdown is Sunday, but I threw some sponges in and turned the turner off because I think we are having some early babies! So much for thinking that I had a few days between the broodies hatch [​IMG] Anyhow 5 of the broodies babies look great but one I don' think is going to make it, poor thing. It isn't up and walking yet and the broody left it behind after she showed the rest the food then moved off a bit to sit.....[​IMG] Guess my life is crazy at the moment. Now watch they won't do anything soon and I am gonna worry I stopped turning too soon! [​IMG] I guess maybe it will be easier to integrate them into Millies little brood if they are closer in age.
