    I just had a nice hatch out of the new Brinsea. 30 new babies, with no early or late hatchers. I ended up using a cardboard flat with the tips cut off for ventilation and just let them hatch out of it. It has been super dry here so I had to throw a sponge in for extra humidity toward the end. They started pipping and zipping on the night of Day 17. I took twenty out on the morning of Day 18 and ten more a few hours later. All of the chicks are going strong.

    Quote:He/She definitely has the quail attitude down! It cracks me up how funny they are when they flop over to sleep with their feet stretched out or flap their stubby little baby wings.
