  1. So excited to hatch our own bantam mottled cochin chick from our hen and roo. I have 6 more in the bator that are moving right along at day 15. This is even more exciting than hatching shipped eggs!!!

    LOL I know the feeling! [​IMG] I'm on day 22 with a wiggling little egg! Still waiting for it to pip and it seems like forever!!! [​IMG]
    Our hen, Abby, laid the egg, so it's not shipped either. [​IMG]
    Good luck!
    And i must warn you, even though I haven't hatched any eggs before(this is my first hatch) I know that it IS addicting!!! [​IMG] Once you start hatching some little fuzzies out, you won't want to stop! Pretty soon you will have loads of chickens and bators filled with eggs probably! LOL [​IMG] Good luck again!
