    I just happened to check the incubator, was looking at my 11 mix eggs that should be moved to the hatcher Monday. I had 3 eggs that I was not real sure when I set them , things got out of control with my multiple sets and I left these 3 off the calendar. Anyway, one of those had a pip! So I quickly moved all 3 to the hatcher and I could feel them all moving in the shell, how cool!
    I am still hoping that some of these mixes will be pure cochins from my roo and hen, so far it looks like the mamas for the previous 3 are the RIR and BO hen.

    One chick is here already, little booger hatched with lightening speed, as I was watching it the other egg pipped, I actually heard it pip!!!!

    Well all 3 hatched within 18hours of me seeing the first pip!
    I juat moved them to a temporary brooder. We are finishing the coop and getting ready to send the 1 month olds to the barn and the big chickens from barn to coop.
    So I will end up with 3 larg totes, for now, in my bathroom.
    I move the 11 mix eggs tomorrow and hope to heck they hatch quickly as my Phoenix eggs need to move next weekend.
