    FIRST CHICK HATCHED FOR THE NEW YEAR

    [​IMG]

    • Description: THIS CONTEST IS FOR THE FIRST CHICK HATCHED ON NEW YEARS DAY
    • Who: OPEN TO ALL PARTICAPANTS
    • Start: Midnight LOCAL TIME, December 31st
    • End: Midnight LOCAL TIME JANUARY 1, 2013
    • Prize:
      1st prize 25$ gift card to Home Depot from cluckycharm
    • 2nd prize 6+ eggs from Mstricer d'Uccle pens




    The plan is for most, or all of us, to set our eggs on, Tuesday December 11, 2012 at NOON (LOCAL TIME). Obviously, this is an honor system contest. We are using the Atomic World Clock for our OWN LOCAL TIME. When your first chick is completely out of the shell, AFTER Midnight 12:00:00 AM* on January 1, 2013, you take a picture of it in the incubator (wet), then go to you computer and take a picture of the Atomic Clock, link posted below, of the time in your time zone. We are setting at NOON our time, in each time zone. We hope by starting at NOON it should keep the early hatchers to minimum [​IMG].
    Here is the link to the clock, we will all need to synchronize our computers: http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_US-OH.aspx
    (Make sure you change the state, the clock in the link is for Ohio)
