    I set my first eggs 3 weeks ago today. Yesterday eving at about 7:00 p.m. started day 20 and when I got home, I had 2 pips already. Before I went to bed, 2 had already hatched and making alot of fuss (the good kind). When I got up this morning, I had 3 more chicks that were already hatched and 1 that completely zipped and 2 more that were pipping.

    This is my first hatch and I am so excited. I must have done something right in addition to all of the advise that I received from all of you. By the time I get home, I should have about 6 more or so.

    The are Jersey Giants (blue, black, and splash) from Maria Hall. You can't go wrong with her eggs!!! I will keep you posted and upload pics.
