This is my first time hatching egg, I am soo excited, in the beginning I put 42 eggs and on day 18, only 29 left on the bator
I woke up this morning and saw 1 baby hatched, she make my day


I went to work but my mind into the bator
Went home I am straight to the bator, I got another baby, every 20 minutes I checked on them
I forgot cooked dinner for my husband because I am sooo busy peek thru' the bator window and wait what's going to happen, luckily he understood I had new addiction

as I wrote this, I got 8 babies already, still 21 eggs to go but I saw 6 pip, hope when i get up in the morning, I'll get more babies


I will move the babies into brooder tomorrow, I had several pip, I am worry those babies will harm the eggs because I saw them run around the eggs, sit on top of the eggs, the thermometer, the hygrometer, I guess they just having fun out from the shell


well i think I better go to bed with smile, I agree with some member said, hatching baby chicks is very addicted, I've already thought about hatch another batch next week.

nite nite everyone, i'll post some pics of my babies soon

Oh dear, dear.......this is the scary thing about incubating. The first time you do it, you are hooked.


Welcome to the world of hatchoholism. There is no known cure.


congratulations!!!!

PS. The fact that I have two more sets of eggs in the bator should not reflect on my condition. I can stop if I want to.

WOO HOO CONGRATS. Keep that bator shut though!

Yes, Yes, thearpy that is what I like to call it. I just incubated 600 eggs not all hatched but it started off that way. then about the time they all started hatching I had to get more eggs to put back in. I felt much better after putting them in. I even have concocted an evil plan of setting eggs every weekend throughout the spring and summer. BWAHAHAHAHA! What fun!
