    Hello! So glad to join you all! My husband and I started hatching eggs with one small incubator in May and we are hatching for a young man who sells the chicks. We are now up to seven small incubators! I want to send gratitude and blessings to those who provided information on splayed legs and silkie diets! Those posts were read and reread and allowed me to help several little chicks!

    Also thank you to the very detailed post of how chicks and ducks hatch and how to carefully assist when needed. I just don't have enough thank you's to tell you how much your thoughtful post meant to me. When I am on here again, I will find your name and send post directly to you.

    Thank you for welcome, especially when yesterday the hatching incubator remained so quiet, rather than pipping as was listed on calendar....Fortunately I decided to give them another day and today there is pipping and chirping! (I do candle eggs but don't trust my skills with it. Trying to get better. Do most of you have professional candlerers?) Last night had a surprise when I went to add water to incubator and kept hearing what I thought was baby duck sounds. I started looking at individual eggs and sure enough one little guy had pipped early!

    I just use a bright flash light in a dark room. Seems to work for me. :)

    So glad you are having great hatches! :)
