    My wife got me an incubator for Christmas and I proceeded to put 9 eggs in from random girls crossed with our gl polish.
    5 made it to lock down and this morning I see 2 pips. Tomorrow is supposed to be hatch day. I have to say that this is one of the neatest things we've done.[​IMG] Can't wait to see what happens the rest of today and tomorrow.

    Congratulations Chris! You're ahead of my little OE eggs at this point. Tomorrow is hatch day but no pips yet.

    No idea what they'll look like. The girls are 2 br, 1 Delaware, 1 white leghorn and 1 buff Cochin all crossed to the gl polish boy.
    I'll get some pics up when they finally hatch.
