    I went in to put the incubator on lockdown as per the instructions and lo and behold, there were 3 peeps in there!! Still wet, but pretty active. And 4 other eggs have cracks! I wasn't planning on setting up the brooder until this afternoon, so now I'm rushing around like Chicken Little, for sure.

    Glad I'm not the only one. Put the incubator on lockdown on Monday night, expecting hatch Wednesday/Thursday. Two eggs peeped at me when I moved them. Tuesday after work, 3 hatchlings! Wednesday morning, 3 more! Maybe I DID remember the set date correctly [​IMG]

    I'm on day 19 under a broody silkie as of this morning no pips but i didn't look real good just a quick sneak peek since it's 25 outside I'm excited these will be my first silkie crosses and i'm just hoping she will stay broody long enough for the 2 turken eggs to hatch next week [​IMG]

    The peeps are mixes as I have a both an EE and BO roo and EE, Buff Orps, Wyandotts (SL & GL) and dk Brahma hens. These 3 came from brown eggs, but they all have tiny little beards, so looks like Mr. Feathers is the papa.

    I did go ahead and remove the egg turner and added water to the other reservoirs. Humidity is up to 65% right now. I hope that's correct. This is my first hatch too.
