    Hello friends!
    I did scan this forum, but didn't see a thread quite what I was after. Got eggs pipping, and I've got to share!
    Eggs from Ebay, placed 5/2. Bought 10, shipped 11, down to 9 in 2 incubators (space concern).

    On to the action!

    First time using this thermometer/hygrometer. Now we've hatched our share of chicks and I've never dropped or raised the temp for hatch, so I'm not messing with it this time!

    There's a pip in there, I swear! Dang frosty plastic sided incubator...

    I hear peeps from both incubators. Husband can also hear them from about 10 feet away.

    Not a pip, but a crack. Kid is screaming its head off.

    Any updates? I've ordered eggs from ebay 3 times. The first two orders I made to come the same time. 4 eggs hatched from one order and 0 from the other, but that's the risk you take I guess. I just got 18 more eggs from a seller I've not dealt with before (just two hours away from me though) and all appear to be intact and well-off. I'm interested to see how this hatch will be. I'm using a different incubator than I have for my previous two hatches, too.

    Good luck with these babies!

    I paced off and on for hours last night, then took my sleeping meds.
    Got up around 6 EST and there was still cheeping but no babies.
    Now I see THIS!
