    I just put in 6 EE, 10 BR, 3 BO, 5 Dominques, 1 langshen, 1 Cukoo Maran, 3 Leghorn, 1 RIR, and one mutt from my chicks. I only got 9 out of my last 30, I'm sure mostly to my anxiousness. I messed with them more than I should have. These are being left alone, except for candling every 7 days and rotating. [​IMG]

    Good luck with your hatch. The best way to improve your hatching is to keep on trying. [​IMG]

    RCL,
    I put 24 more in the bator on Tuesday morning.
    Had 7 to hatch, the last 2 on Monday morning and I couldn't bear the thoughts of that bator being empty.
    Plus I ordered 18 from Ideal, due to ship on the 27.........So, they'll be around the same age and I can brood them together.

    Yeah, DH is gonna kill me.

    Well I've had the flu, and didn't have the energy to turn them until 4pm. Well the bulb had gone out and I don't know when. The temp was 72. I replaced the bulb, but don't have much hope in them. [​IMG]

    Rubber,
    I have messed up so many times I dont want to even describe how much it sucked....BUT......it is amazing how though all of that I end up with babies!!!!!!!!!!!! I have sticky candling fingers and during the hatches I open the bator(all bad stuff) but they still hatch. Maybe not as many as I wanted, but I did not kill them all.

    Keep your fingers crossed. When is day 21?

    Hatch date is Feb 29 at 8pm. I'm not throwing them out or anything until March 3rd, or they start to smell. Part of them are EE's so I won't be able to tell anything until the hatch date.
