    Congratulations! [​IMG]

    What day are they on, I have read that Orps can take their own sweet time? Oh, and what kind of incubator is that, please?

    The incubator is a Brinsea Octogon 20. They are on day 22, but not all have hatched yet.

    So cute.

    I take it you are happy with the Brinsea?

    I currently have a Genesis 1588, but have been thinking about upgrading.

    Yeah I love the Brinsea. I started off with the 1588 Genesis and I liked it, but I went ahead and upgraded. I almost got kicked out of the house when the old lady saw what I spent on the incubator. I really like the attachment that allows you to set the humidity. It makes it real easy.
    The only thing I don't like is that it only hold about 20 large chicken eggs.
