    I placed my 18 Mille Fleurs in the hatcher 3 days ago. Was really worried about this hatch, cause when I candled them at 18 days, some had odd air sacks. so I placed them in the hatcher and hoped for the best. So far today, I have 6 that hatched and from what my daughter reported the rest are pipping. I was hoping to get a couple out of this hatch, but from the looks of it, it will be a good hatch! This has so made my day. I will have to post some pictures of the new little ones as soon as I get home from work. [​IMG]

    Sorry I did't get pictures posted yesterday, but I got a call from a lady that had peacocks for sale and I ended up at her farm for most of the night.

    I miss counted on the eggs that I put in the incubator (which is not hard for me to do [​IMG])

    I set 22 eggs, 19 Mille Fleur eggs and 3 unknown eggs that she sent with Mille Fleur eggs.
    Ended up with 13 Mille Fleurs, 3 unknowns. One pipped, but didn't make it out of the shell and 5 didn't do nothing. So I would say that was a good hatch!! Still waiting on the last mutt egg to hatch, hopefully tonight. Then we get to start on the 2nd batch-12 Jersey Giants will be going into a hatcher tonight.
    And we still have Blue Laced Andalusian, wild turkey eggs and 2 peafowl eggs to go.

    Here is a few pictures of the little guys.

    Makes me wish I had an incubator... but I don't have room for the hens I have right now... so maybe in two or three years. Oh how I wish I still lived on the farm of my youth.
