hi
this is our second attempt at hatching. last time we had 4/12 viable at day 16 and the cat knocked the incubator off the table and smashed the eggs
. this time we set 18...12 bantam cochins ( pekins to us in UK ) and 6 different large fowl. we just candled for the first time at day 9. 12/12 of the pekins are fertile and 4/6 of the others. so....really hoping that at least some of these will hatch.
