    I've got 5 black copper marans that have just hatched out in the incubator I'm keeping under my desk at work. It looks like 2 more are pepping. (Those last few have it rough as the others already out keep bumping into them.)

    Out of 13 eggs 4 weren't good leaving 9. Five have hatched, 2 are pepping. Keep your fingers crossed.

    Just to let everyone know.....
    Of the 13 eggs, 4 were not fertile.
    Of the 9 eggs there were fertile, 5 hatched.
    One piped but could not get out on it's own and died shortly after I helped it.

    Right now I have 5 beautiful healthy looking chicks that appear to be doing well.

    I would have liked to have had more hatch, but I suppose it's not too bad for the first hatch from under my desk at work.

    (BRING ON THOSE DARK CHOCOLATE EGGS.)
