    I just did my first ever batch of those. They went into the incubator at 11:45 pm on Friday, June 18th. The first chick hatched on Tuesday, July 6th at around 10:00 in the morning, so that was really like 17 full days. The last one hatched at 3:00 in the morning on Friday, July 9th, basically 20 days.

    I had 8 hatch out of 25 total eggs shipped to me, but one died a couple of hours later. The very last one to hatch has been very weak and really struggled, but it seems to have perked up a lot finally and I am cautiously optimistic.

    Obviously, someone's computer was malfunctioning during the above post -- whether mine or the forum's I'm not sure.

    I guess my message came through at least.[​IMG]
