    This is my first time to incubate eggs. So far everything seems to going great. We only have 16 eggs, as our rooster died suddenly. If I get at least 1 chick, it will be a successful hatch for me. [​IMG]

    I have 11 that went in to lockdown yesterday. I'm hoping I was counting right and didn't go a day early. All my eggs are "mutts" except for one. It will be a BO if it makes it. I'm trying to get some green egg layers to go with the blue and brown ones. Wish them luck!

    This is my first hatch too. I locked down 8 last night, due around Friday. I have shaking and vibrating eggs but no peeping yet. [​IMG]

    I am going to get some baby chicks today and put their box next to the eggs to encourage them to hatch!
