    Today is day 20 of my very first hatch. The first egg out of 11 (one got dropped by my daughter at the very beginning) is hatching. I'm so excited. Wish me luck![​IMG]

    We have 3 chicks and four more hatching! The one in the original picture got stuck in her shell and dried out. I left her 24 hours so she could absorb most of the yolk, and used the walk-through on this site to slowly help her out. She is doing great!

    I have been using the same incubator for 15 years now and tried to put it in
    storage last month and the grandkids found me some goose egg's in the
    yard so it came out of storage before the dust could collect on it [​IMG]



    Hatching is an addiction for which there is no know cure [​IMG]



    Good luck with your hatch [​IMG]
