    Hey!

    I just put in 13 showgirl eggs in the incubators (6 in my still air Styrofoam incubator + 7 in my brinsea advance incubator). They are due I guess on the 24thish? Good luck on your hatch! :)

    I am going to be using this egg candler I purchased off of Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/270913735132. It arrived today! :D

    I have never hatched any eggs before! I tried incubating peafowl eggs at one point but they were duds. :c But it has been 4 months since that so I am giving it a go with these showgirls. I will be posting pictures definitely! I want to do this right and document. c:

    Oooooo! That sounds great! I love the idea of having mixed breeds in the incubator.
    I will be expecting either showgirl or silkies and between blue, splash, black, and white frizzled perhaps.

    Thanks and back to you! And happy to help with directing you to a candler. :) I love it- it is very bright and shines through the eggs crystal clear.
