    I don't know what I am doing right now!!! We got our fist baby chicken!!!
    We have about 20 more in the incubator - C1 (as it will be named for now - Taco if it is a boy)
    my problem is that we left the turner in (it is off) we have egg 22 on a good zip

    I am so spazzed out I cant type and I don't know what to do -- do we take the turner out when C1 comes out????

    Im like a chicken with my head cut off!!!!! So excited scared excited happy excited
    WHAT THE HECK DID WE JUST GET OURSELVES INTO????
    Our tub is way to small for 20 babies!!!

    Im scared C1 will hurt it self on the turner

    We hatched a chicken!!!!!
    and C1 is very happy to be out -- quite vocal!!!
    Surprised the cats havent come to investigate!!!

    Will post a pic as soon as I can get it off my phone!!!

    oh it is off!! take a breath and say YAY Im getting chicks!!!


    can I see a pic or tell me what type turner and bator you have? I think its best to up your humidity and let them alone to hatch. But I want to confirm this with your bator

    Update
    We have two chicks - one more on the pip -- what is the best bedding newspaper that has been shredded or the shavings?
