    Well after losing a whole batch to an incubator malfunction we reset eggs and started over.
    Lockdown started today and I am already a nervous wreck.... I am sitting on my hands and vow to let nature do the work but I need some hand holding.
    This is our first time incubating and everything has looked great so far...all looked great at candling time so nothing left but the hard part!

    OMG! It hasn't even been 24 hours and we have our first PIP!!!!!!!

    So Excited! We were worried about this one because the egg had no obvious large end and I had it upside down for a couple of days at first
    but I guess everything turned out ok... see...

    Well, he or she is either a BR/EE mutt or an EE. It is hard to tell the BR and pinkish EE eggs apart. Our Roo is an EE
