    Can I get a amen!! Finished my frist hatch attemp yesterday and man am I a happy little camper or what?? W ould not of tried if not for this great site and all of the knowledge that floats around here . Sometime that's not all that floats around here if you know what I mean. HaHa!!! Well I have to give two thumbs up to Double R Discount. that's where I got my bator and a dozen Golden Dutch eggs. Sure liked the way they were packed. All were intacted, and they sent me 14. After day 7 candeling, three were clear and two were not as developed as the others. So after day 14 I trashed the five, and the remaining were looking good. Eight of the nine hatched, and one started to hatch but ended up died in the shell. I'm still very pleased with the outcome. It can always be worse. I have a few pics to share hope you will enjoy, and good luck to everone with your hatches. Dutchman[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] there's some of that other stuff right now!!!
