Well, my first attempt at hatching was a success in my opinion. I managed to hatch 7 of 12 eggs. The last few days seem to take forever. Things that I experienced that I was not aware of; 1. My eggs did not start pipping until late the 22 day. Don't give up on them. As a matter of fact I am giving the other eggs a few more days just in case. 2. It takes a long time for them to hatch once pipping has started. My average was 8 to 9 hours from pip to hatch. Some folks who are experienced in hatching may get theirs to hatch faster. 3. I am not sure weather this helped or not but once they pipped the humidity was only 50%. I am not sure if it was the right thing to do or not but I added 2 wet sponges and got the humidity up to 75% while the hatching was going on. If any experienced folks have a few tips for me on the next hatch I would appreciate it. I am using a LG 9200. Hand turning with no fan. I do have eggs hatching in a homemade bator that is due in less than 2 weeks. I will try and add pics later. I had a hard time not wanting to help them with the hatching. They will do it. They peck awhile then rest.
