    This is the first chicks I have tried to hatch. And I did it !!!!!!!!
    My hubby got me a bator for Valentines day. And we put 16 eggs in. I had one little one yesterday before work and several that had pipped when I got home. At midnight I had another to hatch and this morning when I got up I had 4 more. And several more pipped eggs !!!!
    Cant wait to get home today !!!!

    I want to say thank you to everyone that has posted their hatching stories. you have really helped me to make it through this looonngg wait. I have read on BYC everyday and have learned so much..
    Thank You

    Congrats! I had my first hatching last year of guineas and swore I'd never do it again after I lost one after the first night. But of course yesterday I took delivery of 24 silkie eggs. Must be like child birth - you swear you'd never do it again but then what happens.........[​IMG]
