    I just set some eggs in my incubator today about 10 minutes ago. They were shipped!
    I hope they do well! Who else set today? When will they hatch?? [​IMG] this is only my 4th time [​IMG]
    (And this is my first time doing this 'hatching buddy' thing)

    What does a "hatch buddy" do? Just curious - I don't have any hatching experience. I usually start with day-old "magic chicks."

    I set 13 BBS Plymouth Rocks yesterday , 5/13, at 3 PM.

    Our first hatch didn't go well at all. Going for a dry hatch this round as my thought is the 9 developed eggs drowned. Had one lone chick hatch. No worries as we picked up some blue Orpingtons to keep her company.
