    So far two eggs have hatched from Tony. I bought a pile of eggs from him and Charlie but think my incubator is defunct or something. Very low hatch rate yet the eggs were very carefully packed. Time to get a different bator I guess.

    A third egg is pipping but doing so from the small end.

    The two new chicks are in with three araucana chicks and seem to be doing good, they are snuggly little peeps.

    The third egg is done as of 5 am this morning. It is a male so I have two girls and one boy. That is if he makes it. I had to help remove him from the egg, the membrane was stuck and dried onto him. I pulled the membrane off and he kicked himself out of the shell in my hand. He had the yolk completely absorbed and the veins were all empty in the shell lining so no bleeding. I left him in the incubator to dry out and have some time to get his bearings. I hope to find a happy chick when I get home.

    Good luck with your hatch!!!!
    I have some in the bator now and due to hatch tonight.
    I'm affraid mine will do nothing. But hoping any way.
    Can you tell me your humidity and the last few day's.
    Mine is at 57%. Don't know really what it should be.
