    I decided to put the Brinsea mini II on our dresser in the bedroom with 7 eggs. Our kids have 3 cats that has been prowling our house except our bedrooms. Day 20 first egg hatched (Ice Cream Bar) followed by Black Copper Marans & Olive Egger. Hopefully day 21 all the eggs will hatch

    Thanks! I got older ones, these are from my chickens but first on my mini incubator. I got more hatching in over a week from my very first broody hens. This year couple decided to go broody luckily I got fertile eggs from my 2nd coop, I think the 3rd hen just went broody on me today I might give her eggs too. :eek:

    I can’t wait to incubate my own.
    It’ll be a while for that, I think.
    I might have a broody before I do any incubating lol.
    I have a Silkie chick :clap

    Day 21 4th chick hatched, day 24th (Saturday night) I’ve checked the rest of the eggs. I sadly concluded to turn off the Incubator and do an eggtopsy, two have pipped on the wrong end of the eggs and died, I was not sure if I should had intervened, one had quit developing early on. Since theyre really dark shelled eggs it was hard to candle.
