    I had my first hatch in my Dickey this weekend. I set 31 eggs, 26 hatched. I haven't opened the others up yet, they are quiet, no chirping, no peeping, but I am going to leave them. I always leave them until Wed, b/c that is when I will clean out the hatcher and set the next batch in the hatcher. I don't think 26 is bad at all though. I have pictures, I just haven't got them all uploaded yet, here are a few.

    84% hatch rate is not bad at all and look at all those fuzzy butts. Congratulations!!!
