    Thanks you to everyone who post questions, and for those that answers.
    I have learned so much. I appreciate all your knowledge.
    I have wanted some polish frizzle chickens , and the only way
    To get them is hatching them myself. Yep I have had no clue what I am
    Doing, sadly in 2 hatches I only had about a 30% hatch rate. They all looked
    Good until hatch day then only a few hatched and no frizzles.
    In my second batch I got 3 chicks. After waiting 1 1/2 day after peeping and
    No progress, I helped them. All 3 are doing amazing. Thanks to the help I
    Found from you Q &A. Thanks so much
    Nanette

    No frizzles,:( I will try again. I am have trouble with
    Bad hatch rate. I follow all the rules, I thought. They look good
    At day 18. Any suggestions on thermometers?
