Thanks alot you guys! All the talk about your chicks pipping has got me itching. I put 10 eggs in a makeshift aquarium on Tuesday just to see what would happen -- not really caring if it didn't work! After 2 days, our first cool night caused the temp to drop to 96 -- I was disgusted. So I bought an incubator and transferred the eggs Friday night. I'm hoping now the eggs are still fine. I will candle by Wednesday to make sure -- if not OK, I've been collecting more eggs to replace them with. WHY did I have to keep reading the posts in this section??? CONFESSION: I'm a chickenaholic!!
