    Hey James! [​IMG]

    I have one little Sebright that has hatched! Cute little booger... and
    Pips in...
    2 Sebrights
    2 Turkens
    3 Orps

    It's early so I hope to have more pips.

    My uncle passed away and I have to go to the funeral today so I may miss them hatching. Maybe some will wait till I return...

    [​IMG] I am so excited about the Orps... [​IMG] I hope I get at least one blue!

    Hey James...
    So far I have had 9 hatch. [​IMG]
    2 Sebrights
    3 Turkens
    4 Orps

    I lost 1 Turken and 1 Sebright. They piped and zipped half way...It was in the beginning so maybe a humidity issue. I raised it once that happen and things have been fine since.

    I moved the hatched chicks to the brooder and I have five eggs still in the bator... 1 Turken and 1 Orp that have piped. 1 Turken, 1 Orp and 1 Sebright that have not done anything yet.

    And Guess What??? The Opr egg that I dropped another egg on when candling and dented...It Hatched! I was so happy! So far no blue orps all four are mixed buff/blue...I am [​IMG] that at least one of the last two orps will be a blue.

    After they all finish hatching and fluff out I will try and take a picture of them.
