    I would say that so far out of 70 some eggs only 5 are not showing much. I am not giving up on them have set them to themselves and will check them again on friday. I got most of these from Bargain, pidgey104 and Kbbeale. I also got some from SandS poultry right here in eastern NC. Their's are 100% growing so far. I have speckled sussex, cuckoo Marans, RIR's and buff orphingtons from them. All of these were very nice people and had very nice eggs.
    I have a second incubator going with eggs I got off crazytrain and again from bargain. I have black langshans, RIR's and speckled sussex and some of my own Barred rocks. I also have EE's from mine and Bargain. I have about 35 in this incubator. I hope chick feed is chep this year. The semerams I got from kbbeale are doing really well and I would like to thank her for sending them to me. She did a great job packing and her 12 eggs are going strong. Good hatching to all and will update soon. Later, dave27889

    Thanks a lot. I am really lucky so far. My 16 year old daughter really thinks it's neat to see the chicks forming.

    Good job Dave! We have been getting 100% development from the RIR's and Sussex as well - they are both young flocks and I think that makes all the difference in the world. The Orps and Marans are older but they still are in the mid to upper 90% range.
