    13 out of 15 sizzle eggs from sarahssizzles made it into the hatcher. [​IMG]
    Plus, I set 6 eggs from my own BBS bantam Orps...and 5 of those made it [​IMG] ...
    Plus+plus 2 for 2 of my red frizzled bantam cochin/blue bantam orp mutt eggs [​IMG] .

    So, 20 eggs due to hatch this Friday...but I can't stop checking that bator looking for pips! [​IMG]

    My kids keep staring at mine looking for pips. I tell them, wait till Saturday, but they all want to be the first to see some action.
