    Here's the sweetie pie. We've had so many problems hatching eggs that I decided to just give it one more go for the year. I threw in whatever eggs we had a few weeks ago so the bator would be full and culled after ten days. I just checked them again Sunday and took out everything that wasn't alive any more. This egg was still moving around so it got put back in. Well today we were busy processing meat birds and I forgot about the eggs in the bator completely so I hadn't even looked at them. Tonight I hear peeping and when I open the door, this is the sight that greeted me. [​IMG][​IMG]The only thing we did differently this time was we upped the humidity to 55% - 60% for the entire set. I just have duck eggs left so they'll be another week at least.

    Here's a new pic. It's drinking and walking around pretty well now.
