    Details? Your great might be different than mine.....

    I'm glad you had pipping! I came home to 2 hatched, and 9 pips. Only the bantams are doing anything. The 4 Polish and 17 BCM's are just sitting there. When I locked down, one of the Polish had a nice draw down, so I'm expecting at least 1 of the Polish to hatch. I'm guessing the Bantam are just earlier hatchers. I never noticed that with my silkies.

    Yay!! congratulations on the cute little fuzzies! I hope that the 5 you suspect as quitters surprise you!

    He is beautiful! That's funny about the fence hopping! I love his coloring!

    Looks good! I have 10 eggs due in 2 weeks progressing well, though 1 of those is iffy. Looks like about 4% humidity lost. Anyone who weighs eggs, that sound about right for 1 week? I suck at judging air cells so decided weight would be good.

    Washed out hatcher and will put my other 9 into lockdown tomorrow. Their weight also looks good, 11.5% weight lost. Air cells suck, though. Will need to hatch upright.
