    My parter and I have just recently bought a small holding in Bedfodshire, beautiful spot.
    I've always been around animals back in my native Australia so naturally have to get something....
    We bought an incubator online as I've never incubated chickens before, well - I lost so much sleep with worry!!! Anyway finally got through our first hatch. Out of 12 eggs 2 were infirtile from the start 6 hatched and 4 didn't hatch.

    Now I've just set in the incubator duck eggs!! Very excited to see how it all goes :)

    Welcome Georgie Girl, I think everyone hatching chicks suffers from the "blind staggers," due to being up all night, without sleep, waiting for something to happen.
