    I am on day 20 with my eggs that I bought from Dipsy Doodle Doo (thanks Lisa!)

    I've got Ameraucana, Frizzles and 3 Naked Neck eggs in the 'bator ( a total of 36)

    Had one pip last night-- woke up to 1 Ameraucana, 1 Frizzle and a zipping Ameraucana.
    Right now-- 2 Ameraucana chicks, 1 frizzle-- and a pipping NN, and a pipping Frizzle!!

    I'll be taking pics. as soon as they dry off a bit and I move them over into the other incubator ( it's warming right now--- and I don't think with 3 cartons full of eggs in the Hovabator, that there will be room in there for all the chicks--). I promise-- I'll post as soon as I can.
    The frizzle is BEAUTIFUL!! Grey and yellow with yellow fuzzy feeties!
  6. Yaaaay! Can't wait to see them. Good luck with the rest. Be careful opening the incubator, wouldn't want to monk up the rest of the hatch.
