    yep, last night I put them on lockdown about 9pm. and this morning at 6am, we've already got 1 that is out [​IMG] she was ready!!!!! glad I didn't forget to do lockdown last night, HA...woulda been trouble.

    have 16 eggs in the bator (small hatch this time), 4 that I'm not sure are going to be anything, and 1 that just pipped and zipped [​IMG] So, we shall see what we end up with. My chicks never seem to wait til day 21! They are anxious to get out into the world [​IMG]

    I have 6 barred rocks that have pipped and zipped, 1 that is working on it.

    and 3 of my RIR/Production Red that have pipped and zipped. There are 5 more eggs that have done nothing. I might attempted to help and see if they are alive come tonight.
