    I cannot wait! They are on day 16, which they could hatch easily today, but normally my coturnix chicks hatch on day 18. I'll take pictures when I get some chicks right now it's veryhard to see pips [​IMG]

    I have 21 that are doing well all the others were either duds or died in their shells- two i had to PTS, a white with it's brains hanging out [​IMG] and another with it's umbilical area on it's back instead of belly, and it's one leg was up too high for it to sucessfully ever walk [​IMG] . My incubator ran too high during the incubation process and I think that's what caused this. I cannot WAIT to get a sportsman incy is all I can say! I am happy though I atleast got 21, I had a little over 40 so that's not too bad.

    what is in the brooder:

    1 A & M
    1 Golden
    2 Tuxedos
    a ton of Tibetans (british range)
    and a few browns
