    Today is day 10 for the 1 out of 4 fertile egg! It is growing and wiggling around in it's shell. [​IMG] I am very excited and surprised that my homemade bator is working! and like I have said before, this is my FIRST TIME hatching eggs! [​IMG] And so far, i am planning on getting some more eggs, even though we have enough chickens right now! This egg business is great! [​IMG]
    Anyway, back to the egg. The temp. is steady and humidity is good. The chick is "dancing" in his shell like he's having a party in there or something! LOL!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] And I think I see him/her starting to kick!
    Sorry I have no pics. Still haven't gotten the hang of it. [​IMG]

    So i just thought i would update you on my fertile egg! The other three still aren't developing though. [​IMG]

    Just wanted to share this with you! [​IMG] wish me luck!

    Thanks!
    I don't know if i will have pics, due to not knowing how to put pics on here. [​IMG]
    but here's an UPDATE:::: The chick is a red star/rhode island red/(i think) bantam mix. So i wonder what color it will be.... [​IMG]

    I can help with pics if you need help. I know red stars are RIR mix but this will be cool to see how they turn out.

    If you have a photobucket account you can add them to photobucket. Then copy the link and paste it on a new post or existing post.
