    Hi all!

    I have been raising chickens for years. However, this Spring I will be hatching my own eggs for the first time.

    Any pointers/advice for the first time hatcher?

    YES,..make sure you have plenty of sleep before day 18 [​IMG]. The waiting can be torture,[​IMG] so be prepared. Good luck on your babies!!:

    Mine are on day 3 in the incubator. If all goes well it will be my first time as a chick mama. What day are you on?
