    I was gone for a couple hours riding my horse, I left and there was no sign of anything. I came home to an already dry, fluffy chick!!! I can't wait for the rest! I'm so excited, these were eggs from my own chicken/rooster that had sat outside for over 2 weeks in the 20 degree weather, I wasn't expecting them to grow in the first place I was just messing around with the incubator lol!

    WONDERFUL! Obviously you "mess around" with the incubator successfully enough to hatch chicks.
