    I have been extremely anxious to have these eggs hatch! We started with 20 bantam Black & Blue Mottled Cochin eggs, got down to 14 (couple clear and a couple blood rings.) Then on day 18 I almost tossed a couple more for looking like they'd stopped. Well today day 20 we have 5 chicks hatched and lots of pips!!! One of the ones I thought was a goner has a big pip on it too. Yay!!! I also had gotten a few eggs from ebay. Out of 8, 4 were scrambled from shipping. 3 made it to now. Only one looks good and it has pipped. Yay!!! Can't wait to see them all!!!!

    We have 2 Mottled chicks, 2 Blue Mottled chicks and 1 Splash Motted hatched so far. [​IMG]\\

    7 babies!!! 5 pips!!! I pulled one out who'd pipped yesterday at the small end of the egg. That chick was gone. I tried a few times to get a responce from it. Nothing. But we have 5 pips doing good! [​IMG]
