    I am test hatching some b/b/s orps for Tazcat...she had them packed perfectly, no breaks, beautiful job.

    These are due Wednesday eve/Thursday..just now candled, drew pictures of the air cell, and raised the humidity..

    I am never able to tell a whole lot by candling so I dont do it TOO often...

    Anyhow, out of your 7 lovely eggs...1 is clear, 2 are question marks and 4 look good to go!

    Wish us luck now..we are going into the countdown! [​IMG]

    Oh my, another pip..and I helped first baby a bit, he had pipped the shell but not the membrane so I pipped the membrane for him. He is now out and wandering round the bator but still wet! [​IMG]

    This next one is pipping and has the shell halfway zipped already!
