Hello! I got home from work this evening, turned the large amount of eggs in the small Styrofoam incubator I made, and looked over the other hatcher/incubator where three days ago I placed the first three eggs that had a chance. I began incubating in the beginning of Feb, but with wonky temps over a couple of days I discarded most of them so far. Well, tonight I was listening to the radio, and heard a distinct chirping noise that I knew was not part of the song. Well, I turned off the radio, and looked down into the hatcher, and ONE EGG IS PIPPING!!! The little chick seems to be healthy and all, strong lungs from the sound of the cheeps, and has broken a small portion of the egg away at this time. I do not think I will sleep much tonight, this is amazing, and will it need any help? I am VERY excited, and delighted to post this as my first share and introduction in the BYC community. This is an eggcellent group of people, I could not have learned so much so quickly without you wonderful folks! Geoff my birds: 1 Dominicker hen, 3 Buff Orpingtons hens and a Buff Orp rooster named Cinderella.
