    !!!!!!!!!!! NOTHING !!!!!!!!!!!

    45 hatched and for now are healthy in the brooder.

    Two more are trying to hatch and are chirping in the shells. this is day 22 so i figure I would give the other eggs another day or so. I don't want to toss them and kill something that may have hatched late.

    Two that didnt make it piped started making its way out of the shell and died [​IMG]

    My first hatch using two LGs That i got off of craigslist and free eggs from pullets that were around 8 mths old.

    I started with somewhere around 60 eggs I'm not certain

    I want to think everyone who helped teach me how to incubate on this forum. There were also a couple that sent me PMs with sound advice. You guys are great!

    Congrats! I am waiting for my chicks to hatch, so far I have 9 duck eggs alive and 18 chicken eggs alive, so I'm hoping for the best. :D
