    Saw two wigglers at least. Lockdown was supposed to be tonight but the external pip on the one made me do it last night instead. This happened last time I incubated Ancona as well. Than the first pipper took 60+ hrs to hatch [​IMG] Believe it or not they are the first time I've tried taking pictures of what I was candling and all were taken with my cell phone.

    I have somewhere in the neighborhood of 75 in the incubator to hatch in May, so I'm in. Besides I REALLY NEED the coop!

    As of yesterday, I have 9 broodies too.

    Over run with chicks is an understatement!

    the eggs were no more than 48 hours old at incubation set. They are all from my flock of 18 hens and 3 roosters. The flock is 11-13 months old depending on the hen. Humidity has been steady at 40%, and temp at 101 (both watched by 3 thermometer/hygrometer ) . Its a TSC LG bator with the TSC turner no fan. I did not wash, rinse, spray or in any other way clean the eggs. I simply gathered them in an egg carton and once I had enough (took 2 days) I filled the bator. Eggs were stored air cell up and are incubating the same way. [​IMG] That's today. Day 8 , look about right?
