    We are on days : 17, 16, 15, 13, 9, and 7 (staggered hatch between two bators, the eggs that are due to hatch are moved to a cleared out bator) Got four cochins hatching probably this Saturday, and then another few on Monday, and valley quail hatching Monday-Wednsday. Almost at lockdown point!

    ETA: Here we are, hello world!

    Pippypoo doesn't like it out here...

    So, that's two out of four due today. The first one is a black mottle, the second is a blue mottle (yay!)
    Two more are pipping, and then another two are due between tomorrow and thursday, and then another six are due on the 11th. The valley quail are due to hatch anywhere within that timeframe. Whoo!

    UPDATE no. 2 12/09
    And here we are with the other two cochin chicks!

    So that brings the new total to
    four cochins, two black M's two blue M's
    one valley quail.

    Two more cochins pipping, more valleys due over the week!

    Sorry Kinder! I couldn't help it. [​IMG]
    I'm feeling that you have a few more that are just a bit shy, the veins will hopefully start popping out in another day or so. Do the yolks look just round, or do they look kinda spread out? Sorry, still kinda freakin' out about it. [​IMG]

    Quote:I love hatching coturnix eggs, they are so adorable, and they just pop out of their shells like little cannons! Well, mine do anyways. When I check on them they'll have just a little pip, and then five minutes later I come back and they're already out of the shell.

    What kind(s) of chicken eggs?

    I really want to get some button eggs soon-lucky!
