    Just wanted to show off the new babies that hatched over the past 24 hours from eggs that Jody sent! I got an 85% hatch rate from the eggs Jody shipped, most likely because they were so well packaged and healthy! Thank you Jody!

    Fresh out of the incubator and just put into the brooder.....

    Mine hatched yesterday! 10 of 14 - 9 made it. The hen stepped on one and I think broke its neck. I'll have to take some pictures of them out with their mama.

    Looks like we got similar hatch rates! Pretty neat since we are less than an hour apart. [​IMG] Good luck with yours!
