OMG!!!
I woke up this A.M. and my incubator is talking!!!

I had to leave town early Thursday to go to a funeral, and got home yesterday. I moved the eggs to the bottom before I left, and had DS put the sponge in on Friday. I did not get to check in the humidity until last night!! It was my best guess whether it was good or not, since I had never done it before!!

This first one is zipped, but I think I hear more peeping...


I ordred a clear door(mine is older, and doesn't even have a WINDOW), but it will not be here till NEXT week!!!


Come on ,little chickies!!

The suspense must be killing you not being able to see in there.


I know I couldn't keep my eyes of the incubator for the last couple days.

How many do you have in there?

Go little chickies...Go!!

It IS killing me!!!!
I keep putting my ear up there!!

I got the one Cochin chick out, and the first Dominique is peeping now!! He was zipped earlier...

There are 19 Dominique, and 8 Cochins, plus I just added 14 blue/ blue wheaton Ameraucanas!!

My first hatch ever is actually working!!

I now have 5 Doms and 2 Cochins, and the bator is talking again!!

It is sooo exciting!! I am sure some of the thrill wears off after a few hatches, right?

I wish more of the Cochin eggs looked pipped, but I am TRYING not to look in there!!

Does anyone know the sexing pattern for the Doms?

The thrill NEVER wears off!! That's why I have 25 babies at home and 31 eggs in my incubator 5 hours away from home where I'm working. I have never experienced this kind of addiction and I just can't help myself. Someone said that rigor mortis is the only cure....I believe it..

I have about 14 Doms and 8 Cochins!! I can't believe all the Cochins hatched!!! They came from a show breeder, and he wanted me to trim their butt feathers to make better contact, but I never got around to it!! I had better fertility with them than the Doms.

Thanks, everyone!!
