    We have chicks... bit of a late/draggy hatch, but they are hatching, even if they are taking their sweet time about it, and though they aren't fluffing up right away(our humidity has been in the 80-90% range since Thursday, so nothing is drying out very fast) they seem healthy and very energetic once they get out... Friday was day 21 and two pipped then, but nobody made it out till Sat evening... as of this morning, before I left for work, there were 4 out, one zipped and almost out, two pipped, and two wobblers...not sure about the last one, but the rest seem to be doing all right... I will try to get pics up tonight...

    It's the big day for me too, only instead of hatching late, mine are hatching early. Good luck with yours!

    well, we got nine hatched... one hadn't absorbed the yolk sack, so we are waiting to see how that one does, but the rest seem healthy and vigorous...

    here are the obligatory pics ( of the 5 that we had moved to the brooder as of last night)
