    I am super excited my eggs started hatching yesterday. These eggs were in my hovabator for the first 18 days and I put them in my new Sportsman on day 18. Out of 8 eggs so far 4 have hatched and 1 is working on it.

    The one thing I have noticed is that they are being blown on in this incubator, the temp and humidity are good and they seem ok but is this constant "breeze" ok for them.

    They are Golden Cuckoo Marans

    here is a pic from yesterday with just the first hatched out

    The wind is fine, helps them dry out quicker to.

    Thanks!

    Ill have to get more pics, I just got home from a long day of school and I got 5 chickies peeping and running around I still hold out hope one more egg will hatch as I was almost positive when I put them in that I had 6 viable eggs of the 8 but I am happy with my 5 chickies!!!
