    Do you have a post documenting your troubles? I am always looking to learn.

    Cute babies!

    I think I posted it here. I couldnt get a thing to hatch. They would grow up till the 18th day and then die in the shell. I think I figured out what happened. I got lazy and was only turning them once a day. I dont think it was enough. I think they got stuck in one place and then couldnt pip. some were pipping into the yolk sack. But I have been turning now 4 times a day and I also got a new thermoitor (I found out that my other one was 2* off!) and a new hygrometer. I use to be the hatching queen! So you can see why I got so upset that I couldnt hatch a thing! [​IMG]

    Oh my- Jen they are just tooooo cute. I'm on day 13 with mine. I hope my little buff one makes it. I'm down to 8 eggs now and one I'm not too sure about. But a couple are real fireballs.
