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! Getting there... Getting there more... I'm out! Annnd closer... What a workout. 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! And the lone valley that hatched this morning!! 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!
