    Ok so this is my first time ever at this whole hatching eggs thing momma hen is teaching me how to do it lol. Today is day 9 i told myself to wait tell day 10 but just could not. I have 6 eggs that has babys:weee im my gosh this is so exciting. Anyway 9 days ago i started with 12, way to much for her. Got down to 9 seamed good know i can only find 7 hmm the last egg looks clear like its not fertile but then i see something moving looks more like a bubble so im letting her set on it for a few more days. Its just so wierd to see this little chick move around in the shell it looks like a hand reaching up and touching the side of the shell before sinking back down inside the egg. I hope all of them hatch i just cant wait to meet them. [​IMG]

    How eggciting! Are you using a mama hen to incubate? Good luck with the hatch. [​IMG]
