    I have 12 "suprise" chicken eggs that were locked down last night at 8pm. This time they were in an automatic turner for the first 18 days so hopefully I will have a better hatch than the 50% I had last time turning by hand. As of Sunday night all 12 were alive and kicking when I candled them. [​IMG]

    Update: Early day 20, checked incubator this morning, VERY early on Day 20, 1 egg pipped and 3 rocking! Since I missed the last hatch due to poor scheduling, (I had to work) I very carefully planned when I would set the eggs so I would be home for the hatch. Planned a 3 day weekend figuring they MIGHT start tonight, but NO, here they go again earlier than expected! Little egg heads! [​IMG]

    I'm trying to time my hatch as well. I'm working two jobs at the moment so I'm setting them when i get home tonight (about 11pm). I'll stay up all night if I have to when day 21 comes around for me. [​IMG]

    I went into lockdown at 8:00pm tonight. I set 6 eggs and 2 were clear on day 13, so I tossed them. I candled right before putting eggs in lockdown and all 4 were moving. My last hatch was 0%, so anything will be better this time. Good luck with the rest of your little chicklets!
