    Hi all! My friend has a farm with happy pet chickens and she gave me 6 eggs and the incubator to try a hatch at home. If any chicks hatch we will keep them two weeks and then they will be at the happy farm with their little chicken family.
    I have been reading on here all day and am thankful for all of the tips I have read but have many questions so thought I better register and ask the experts!

    We are at Day 21 - and have two pips. There was no humidity measuring device in the incubator so I have no idea if I have the right moisture and am freaking out lol. I wish I had known how much can go wrong as I am very nervous now.

    Thanks for the great place to look for help all! :)

    Hi and welcome to BYC.

    I'd suggest posting your question on the "incubating and hatching eggs" forum. I've never used an incubator, so i can't offer any advice but i can wish you the best of luck.

    Can your friend talk you through it? I've never hatched either, so sorry I can help.
