    I am so pleased with my first ever hatch. I used an LG still air and had outstanding results. On January 1st I set 14 BCM eggs in the bator. On day 14 I pulled 1 egg that was not fertile. 13 eggs went into lockdown on day 18. My babies started pipping on day 21 and the first one hatched at 3:45 am on January 22nd. The last one hatched on January 23rd at 7 pm. I only had to help one a little bit due to being shrink wrapped. I helped it zip the shell but it popped all on it's own. I am now the proud mama of 11 beautiful fuzzy butts! I can't believe I had an 85% hatch rate my very first time incubating and with shipped eggs to boot! So here are some pics of my latest family additions!

    Good job! I had a pretty good hatch my first time too, with my LG still air. It held a nice steady temp the whole time, I have no complaints about my LG! Congratulations!
