    I have hatching chicks!!! so far two are hatched and two are zipping now!!! 4 have pipped and still waiting on the last 3 to pip. I can now say my homemade incubator is a success! I originally set 12 eggs, one stopped developing in the first week, and at the moment the rest look like they will make it. [​IMG]

    so far the ones that have hatched are RIR x California White Leghorn. Two are yellow and one is black. The leghorn is for sure the mother because they are my only white egg layers. The ones that are hatching now are either RIR x BR or RIR x BA....Now to order some BCM hatching eggs.
