    I had shipped eggs and I got about 55% hatch rate. [​IMG] But, this was my very first hatch and the incubator stayed open more than it stayed closed. I had to candle them all the time because I wanted to see what they were looking like. So.... all in all, I think I did very well [​IMG] I have in my second batch now for 5 days and haven't opened it except to add more eggs [​IMG] I'm showing so much restraint. [​IMG]


    Oh ..... talk about excited about colors... I sat in front of the bator to watch almost everyone hatch (33 hatched). I was looking for what color and if the had a vaulted head [​IMG] I wasn't at all obsessed [​IMG]

    Good luck with yours [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks.. Zoe loves anything with fur or feathers. Her favorite playmate is our Ferret. But she sure loves the peeps. She thinks they are her own personal squeekie toys [​IMG]
