    I successfully incubated the first time in October- never heard a thing, and I listened constantly. Went to feed the livestock, came back and there was a baby flopping around. You don't always hear it.

    I'm not even sure I'm going to have any hatch because the temp or humidity wasn't constant. I also figure it wouldn't be constant in nature either. temps went from 95 - 103
    Humidity went from 60 - 25. I candled the eggs 3-5 of the 10 eggs looked like the pics on the sticky that posted in this forum. I guess time will only tell. If I get 3 I'll consider it sucess for my first time.
