    This is the first time I've incubated eggs. So this whole process has been a huge learning experience.

    I sat 13 eggs from my own chickens. Discarded one egg at day 8 cause it had the blood ring. Well, I candled them again tonight and...

    Movement in all 12 eggs! Man, I have to sit on both hands to keep from waving at everybody!

    Much better results than with shipped eggs, usually. So happy for you!

    Thanks Guys!

    Speckled Hen, I would love to get some of your eggs at some point in the future. Once I get a little more 'practiced' up!

    DH is gonna build me an incubator this week. Can't wait to see how it comes together!

    The 21st day is the evening of the 13th. So I've still got quite a way to go. We shall see!

    Sounds like we're on the same day, then! My due date is Nov 14, but Day 21 technically starts the night of the 13th. This is another small setting of eggs, then two are due two days later then more on the 21st then 10 on, well somewhere at the end of the month! I have it on the calendar, but I'm too tired to go look. We're hatching buddies!

    Cool! What a great hatching buddy to have!

    You'll really be able to help me when I start to pull my hair out around day 19 or so...
