    I just checked and I got another one piping I had some temp issues to hot then to cool but I figured a little cooler is better than baking the egg finally got it to stay about 100 by day 17. I got some more video to upload

    We ended up with 2 hatch rir chickys 2 developed but didn't hatch I think they drown
    the next hatch we do I'm going to leave them in the egg carton. Today I noticed they started growing some feathers on the wings. The kids are so excited these will be their 4 h Project
