    So following introduction thread I thought I'd throw one up about my attempt at hatching. 6 eggs bought from eBay in a brinsea mini eco, 3 fertilised. Of those, one became a stankegg and was thrown. Last two in lockdown, woke up today and was chirping and peeping and now I have a lovely little chhick floundering all over the other egg. Hoping it hatches soon.

    Waiting for a brinsea brooder heater, but it looks like it wont arrive so I have a back up heat lamp and box with crumb waiting if they both smash out before the postie arrives.

    Photos to follow!
