    I was going to give up and throw everything out today, but I fell asleep and after I woke up, my son heard chirping from the incubator. The strange thing is the one that was completely out and fluffy camefrom a green egg(one of my EE's), my rooster is an EE, but the chick has pink legs????Can anyoneexplain that? Is it from generational mix breeding?

    That's great! Congratulations! I have a few EE chicks that I got from my local feed store. They were a couple days old by the time I received them, and they had pink legs. After a few more days, they grayed up.

    Well,that explains it. I am soooo excited. I am so impatient. I hope the second one fluffs up soon. The first one is lonely.

    That is exciting. Mine are on day 24 today and I have several un-hatched. I had 19 out of 30 hatch.I had planned to turn the bater off tonight. Maybe I should wait a day or two more.

    That settles it,I'm waiting a couple of days. I still have a chick in the bater because it was kind of wobbly. I'll take it out this evening,but leave the bater on. I saw movement in all of these eggs on day 18.
