    I ordered 6 Easter Egger Eggs from mypetchicken.com they came and sent me 7! I tried making my own cooler incubator but it was a fail so I bought a still air little giant for $60 from the local feed store, I candeled the eggs every day lol (yes im a newbie) 2 went bad... could tell by the smell and they started to weep. my chicks where to hatch on the 16th but 5 eggs hatched on the 15th, they are so cute and super healthy.... I didnt think this hatch was going to do so well since it was my first but YAY! Im super excited now looking for plans to build a bigger coop to add them with the rest of my flock when there ready

    Hooray!!! That is so exciting. As you are new you may not know this rule, but you MUST post pictures for us. [​IMG]

    Good going -- from what I've read, that is an amazing hatch rate for shipped eggs.
