    HI all I got 24 eggs from Julie (jab91864) great packaging but 4 just couldn't take the strain. I also got 24 eggs from a local lady and set them at the same time. I set them at 10:30 pm on April 17 so I think the 21st day will be May 8 at 10:30 pm please if I am wrong in how I figured that let me know.

    This is my first time with the bator and things (thank you Jesus and BYC members) are going good so far. When I candled today here is what I found

    Shipped eggs from Julie

    24 shipped
    4 broke
    2 ?
    18 with wiggle babies Yes

    Local eggs

    24 picked up
    4 ?
    1 too green to see
    19 with wiggle babies Yes

    These may be pure bred or may be designer chickies

    Me I don't care as long as they get here healthy and happy

    Thanks for letting me share Happy Hatching everyone
