OMG this is my first incubator hatch....and as im sitting her at the computer being all quiet...I keep hearing this chirping, so I get up and look and one has done the initial poke in the shell, and is rocking the shell and chirping!! HOW EXCITING!!! OMG lol


So I guess I just wait things out from here right....how long will it take for it to come out??

Thanks so much!!


UPDATE as of this morning, there are 3 chicks! Dont seem to be drying out as well as I had thought, but are doing well. Humidity is about 70, but no water droplets or anything on the incubator window. Looks like I have 2 Gl polish so far and 1 sl polish! wooh hooo!!!!

Well it's been my experience that it's a really long wait & so as I finally give in to go say make dinner or even go potty THAT is when the chick with zip out! LOL Seriously it could be minutes or it could be hours... But it's certainly a site to see when it zips.
