    I had my first ever lav am hatch last night. At midnight I heard a loud darn out, "PEEEEEEEEP,! PEEP, PEEP!" I thoughtto myself that a chick had hatched and wondered how I had missed that? Went to look and Peep had just managed to get a small fragment of egg shell off and was peeping up a storm. This continued until 2am when Peep stopped and apparently decided to let the household sleep. Little cutie.

    I am destined to not have Lavs, apparently! Two days ago my 5 week old Split cockerel was killed. I have 8 more in the bator, lockdown today and as luck would have it, the power short circuited last night! I woke up to an 80 degree bator and cold eggs. Crossing my fingers that they make it out!
    I have another batch of about a dozen hatching next week, and grabbing a dozen BBS eggs tomorrow so HOPEFULLY I can get some good lavender pens set up this winter.

    Sorry to hear that! I think they will still hatch, but might be a day or so late.
    Good luck!u

    I see that you are getting answers.
    They should be fine with that short of a shutdown
