    Im sure everyone is always glad to help but I suggest you also go online and do quick google search for incubating hatching eggs and you can print off some of this info for future use ....Ive raised birds for many many years but I find having a reference very useful...I just clip it on my notebook...Good luck with your hatch hope you get lots of cute little fuzzy kids

    Marty1876 Hi Everyone!

    What are you hatching? Just curious.

    I'm with everyone else, you did the right thing by the beg end up theory.
