    I'm Cindi, a new Backyard Chicken farmer. I had my first experience hatching this last few days and it's been tough. I wrote out all the horrible details to you all in a post last night, but I don't think I did it right, or I just can't find it. Anyway started with 19 eggs, 6 have hatched 2!of those died, and 11 have not hatched. Today is going on 24 days. The four that I have are so beautiful, so I am thankful. I sure learned a lot.

    Sorry for your losses. The others may hatch - if they run late it could be due to lower temps in the incubator. Sending good hatching vibes your way [​IMG]

    Thank you all for your kind responses. I had another egg "pip" today, so I'm hopeful for one more [​IMG][​IMG]
