    I put 6 of my chicken eggs in my "new" used incubator 19 days ago and by candling found out only 2 were fertile. Then like an idiot who didn't know what she was doing I bought some eggs and put them in there 8 days ago. Well I have been trying to make a hatcher because yesterday was day 18. I started the hatcher last Monday and had to fiddle with the temp for four days and humidity for three days. I was so frustrated and then yesterday I put the two eggs in there and the temp was still varying by four degrees, down to 99 and up to 103. This is a still air hatcher. I stayed up last night and every 45 minutes checked the temp and fiddled with it. Around 3 this afternoon, the temp and humidity stablized and everything looks good. I am just so scared I killed these babies in the process of trying to figure it all out.

    Please cross your fingers for me! My dd is so excited and I know all things don't work like we want them too, but I am hopefully.

    Here another good hatching vibes
    Since this morning I got 25 babies, I am still hoping I got more babies hatch on Easter Day , all of them still run around inside the incubator

    I am so happy today because in the past 21 days I was worry, the temperature was up and down, I almost gave up because I thought I cooked them when I saw my temp gauge was 105F that was 2 or 3 times during 21 days the temp raised to 105F

    when they start zip, I make a noise "cheep cheep", and they cheep me back, few hours later I got baby, the first baby will help others hatch

    anyway, keep your finger cross, go rest, tomorrow when you wake up you will hear a cheep cheep from those beautiful fluffy baby

    good luck

    Thanks everybody - I know it is only 2 eggs but since we came this far, I don't want to kill them.

    At 4:45 this morning when the Easter Bunny came there was nothing and now at 7:31 there is a pip. I am so excited. It is Easter morning!!!!

    William and Luckygarden, also sending you hatching vibes!
