    Wonderful! Congrats! I just went through this myself.....Pips....trouble sleeping....I started out with 19 eggs in the incubator. Candled just before lockdown, four infertile eggs......So down to 15.......I ended up with 12 chicks, which is my best hatch ever! Three Polish bantam chicks, and the rest were bantam Cochins.....

    What is your final count?
