    I noticed you have them on newspaper. You're not supposed to do that! It can mess up their legs and tendons. Please replace the newspaper with paper towels for continued success. Unbelievable hatch! Pretty chicks!

    wow. If only my RIR's layed more eggs!
    The group of RIR's lays about 5 a day...

    Our Swans man said one of his customers asked him to ask me to hatch out 100 pullets!
    first of all I said it would take me awhile... I only have a Little Giant incubator, also I'm not a genius on sexing chicks at birth...
    and also, what would I do with all those roosters?!

    And my hens would be tired of laying.... lol.
