    I have had the most intresting hatch both in the incubator and under my broody.

    From the brooder I have 1 blue mottled & 1 black mottled d'uccle. I thought Serma eggs hatched on days 18-19 we are on day 20 and nothing yet. I checked a couple eggs and there are chicks in there moving. I'll hope for more progress tomorrow. I might have made a mistake thinking that they hatched early as i put the d'uccle eggs in and 3 days later put in the serama eggs thinking they would hatch on the same day.

    From under my broody she hatched one little cross chick then abandoned her eggs I waited a day and went to pick up the eggs and there was a silver penciled bantam stuck in mid hatch the membrane dried so I helped it out and it is ok. I then candled the rest of her eggs and two moved so I placed them in the incubator one just hatched it is another BSL polish cross and the other is still in there with the serama eggs. that one is a silver pencil bantam also.

    That's 5 little odd chicks ot of 30 some eggs, we will see if any of the other eggs hatch tomorrow.............................I'm still hoping for some seramas

    I have have een eggs hatch at 18-22 days so far. Maybe it's the way I count the days I don't know. Don't give up hope I almost did when the other hatched friday and these didn't.

    I just noticed 1 more pip


    Keep the faith
