    I have 12+ Leghorn/Ameraucana/Mutt Mixed eggs from my dads friend, and they are due to hatch soon! I candled last night and I see life in all of them! They go into lockdown on Nov. 4th. And Hatch on Nov. 7th! [​IMG] Anyone else have chicks hatching on or near that day?

    I have 24 that are due on the 5th-7th (yes, I know staggered hatches are bad. Newbie mistake) it's my first hatch with an incubator. Last night I candled and 20 were wiggling visibly, 4 were harder to see but I think they're alive. [​IMG] They are mostly EE/Buff Orp cross, with a couple pure BO. I'm so excited.

    I set 34 more eggs in the incubator and around 45 in the hatchers on Wednesday and 25 more on Thursday went into the incubator. I have hatches on today (Oct. 29th), Nov. 2nd, Nov. 9th, Nov. 16th, and Nov. 17th so far. So far 35 have hatched.
