    My first baby barred bantam cochin popped out at 2:30pm. I can hear the others talking to it. I never got the chance to candle at day 18 to see how many were still moving because I made a goof on my days. I have a note pad I kept next to the bator to write down the times the eggs were turned. Somehow I got two days of egg turning times written down on one day and didn't realize it until I was counting to make sure Sun. was day 18 and was the last day I had to turn them. I had already turned them three times, when I realized my error and I was on day 19, not 18. I started to panic because I didn't have the humidity up yet. Today is day 20. I don't know if you can see it but the egg in the top right corner has a pip in it. I hope the others follow soon.
