It’s been a long hard journey but I had my first baby hatch today! I don’t have an incubator yet so I tried it old school, with a bin, a cup of water, manual turning and rotating eggs and a heating pad. I had to put 2 hand towels on the pad then one over the eggs and water, and with lots and lots and then a bit more of checking temp and rotation, today I had success! My first baby hatched! I couldn’t be more excited. She is Buff Cochin and EE mix but so cute!
