    We got 10 out of 15 that have hatched. 5 are still in the inubator, and I will give them until tomorrow night. Here are some pics of our cuties:[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    We ended up with 5 Blue Ameracaunas, 4 Black Copper Marans, and 1 Welsummer!!! Hope the rest hatch! But this is a great start, especially for a first timer!!! [​IMG]

    Congrats! That's a terrific first-time hatch rate! 75%--awesome. I hope the others hatch too, but if not--still a good hatch. I aim for 90+% now, but my first hatch was only 60% and I'm just finishing up a hatch right now that is going to be somewhere around 60% due to some incubation errors on my part.

    Congratulations!
