    Just checked the bator and seen 3 of my 12 Welsummer eggs rolling around! I'm really excited, this is the best part of raising chickens along with when you get your first egg from the hens you hatched out yourself! Hopefully when I wakeup in the morning I'll have little ones running around. I still have a dozen Welsummers left in the incubator that go into lockdown next Tuesday along with two dozen wheaten Penedesencas. It's going to be a fun week:)

    Man it feels like they are taking forever! They are chirping a lot more and the vast majority of chips in the eggs. One egg the chick has a hole pecked about 3/4 the size of a dime, it seems like he isn't cutting the egg in a circle is that bad?
