    they where not due tell tomorrow but 6 of the 8 have decided to come today. one of the other 2 is working on it right now and the last one has pecked a small hole but nothing since then. pretty proud of my self. Im using a home made incubator. now that I know it works might be time to set 24 eggs this next time.
