I set 11 eggs for my first time incubating, and I have had an awesome hatch, 9 out of 11 are so far alive and 7 are in the brooder. The other two did not hatch yet as they were not due to hatch until tomorrow. I am grateful to you all for posting on here you questions and ansering them, as I was able to read years of expieriences and have my first hatch success. Should change my name to ChickenDaddy now lol. Thanks again. Here they are in the roaster, they look so confortable there. Here they are all nestled and snug in their brooder.
