    Since we all had horrible hatches last time we are going to start again. I have eggs coming in Wed, Holly has eggs coming in this week, and Lisa is ALWAYS having eggs coming in, So we are going to start a new thread. This time let's hope we have more luck. Anyone else? Starting on Wed or Thursday this week?

    Who hoo [​IMG] Add one more to the list. We're gonna have to think of a name for us, adding everyone's first name to the top is going to get LONG.

    Holly, I dont think you want to have them all 24 hours apart. I might be wrong here. Anyone else know for sure? I thought we needed them farther apart.

    Quote:I have two bators, only 2 sets to a bator so that would mean that one bator would have chicks around a 48 period and then the other 72-96 hrs later. This way the chicks can all stay in b/c they will hatch within 24 hrs of each other in each bator... Does that make sense? lol
