My hatch

    My post when I started the hatch is long gone and I have yet to figure out the search feature here. My 14 shipped eggs went into lockdown Saturday evening. I woke up to one chick this morning, came home to one more, and there are 7 more pipped - THAT I CAN SEE!!!! I would say that is pretty good so far.

    This was my first hatch using my instincts and no thermometer or hygrometer. I'd say it is going well!!!

    I agree with you! I was so aggravated by the differences in the temps and the humidity, I just tossed them and did what I thought was right. Been hatching for 5 years now, but only had a really good hatch rate from my own eggs. I would SOOO do this again!!!
