Have a great 2010
Will post pictures of new New Years chicks when/if they hatch tomorrow.
Happy New Year!
Hope you have the first hatch of the year!!
I still just have two pips.
Hope they get out of those shells before midnight!
Quote:Mahonri, let us see some pictures here. Actually, though, I hope yours don't get out of their shells until just after midnight; that way, you'll have the first chicks of 2010 rather than the last chicks of 2009. Whatever, you might get some of each. Good luck!
Quote:Thanks, but I'm not expecting mine to start hatching until tomorrow afternoon. Happy New Year!
Pips are good,
zips are better,
and best of all is the hatching Chicks!
Happy New Year All!
Nothing but three eggs with incomplete, small cracked holes showing. Not expecting anything now until afternoon.
Did you set on the 11th or 12th?
I set all but one of mine at Noon on the 11th... ended up with two 2009 chicks around noon yesterday at day 21 began and the incubator is rocking now... day 21 will finish for me at noon and I'll bet I still hatch some out after that?
Happy New Year!
Good luck Joe and Mahonri, hope you get your little New Year chicks.
Quote:I started 21 eggs on Dec. 12th, then I couldn't resist adding one more on the 13th (don't ask). Then on day ten, I candled as best I can and found five that I think are infertile, but I left them in the incubator just in case I'm wrong. So I basically have sixteen that could hatch today and one that won't hatch until tomorrow (don't ask). I now have six eggs that have just knocked out a piece of still-intact shell, but none have begun zipping. We're having some dinner guests, and I moved the incubator into the living room so they (actually ME) can watch the hatchings (hopefully) and chicks before and after dinner.
