    So....We got 15 out of 20 eggs hatched! They are a week old now! SO STINKIN cute!!!!!!! Im so happy that our first ever incubator hatch went so well! I was hopeful at first without knowing much, then stressed at the end, not knowing anything about the humidity! All turned out well! My cheapo incubator was great! I only had TWO that were a day or two from being born, and died for some reason... the others died on day 5 or 6 (it looked like to me) so im happy with the results! All babies are going well and now have big wing feathers and tail feathers starting! :)

    That is a great hatch rate for a first time incubating. They are all very cute.
