    I just took out the egg turner, filled up those water rings and set them eggs down [​IMG]. They should hatch in three days, about a dozen eggs from some game breed I don't really know [​IMG] I might be able to post some pics when the piping starts, but I just hope at least a few hatch [​IMG]. Wish me Good Luck [​IMG]

    I woke up this morning, and I got my fist peep! [​IMG]. I have 2 pics . As u can see he only made a small hole but he'll probably be out in a few hours. [​IMG]
    [​IMG] if you look closely, in the hole you can see a white dot, thats the egg tooth that the chick has on the tip of its beak, using it to hatch. Im so excited I got a peep! [​IMG]
