    Hi Everyone, I'm new to BYC and I just wanted to share my excitement about my incubating chicken eggs. Today is day 14 and I'm growing impatient. I ordered the eggs from Florida and I'must in Idaho so I am really praying for a successful hatch. The eggs are from blue partridge brahmas. Not sue if I will end up with a mixed hatch because I don't know what color the rooster was. Either way I can't wait to see the new babies. I will post more as the day gets closers if anyone is interested. Thanks for reading :)

    Just checked temperature and humidity in the incubator and there was a rancid smell in there. Candled the eggs and 2 were dead. Down to 14 from 20 and still a week to go :(

    Update: Just put the eggs in lockdown. Humidity is climbing but slowly. Currently only at 43%. I'll check it in the morning and see where its at. Everything else looks good. Babies should start hatching Saturday :) Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I know how you feel, it's so exciting that it's hard to wait. Now I'm getting nervous though. I just hope everything goes right from here on out.
