    I have to give a big thanks to Melissa (pasofinofarm) for my Friday hatch. I had a 100% hatch on the salmon fav's and 2 of my golden cuckoo marans. These eggs traveled from TX to MI in single digit temps during the Christmas holiday and ended up being 1 day delayed. I thought the hatch rate was pretty awesome things considered. All the eggs were fertile too!

    Group shot - I got a total of 6 chicks, but 1 is off to the side (camera shy I guess) [​IMG]

    My 2 goldens (I hoping 1 cockerel and 1 pullet - the chick to the left is really light especially on the back meaning cockerel)

    A 100% hatch of shipped eggs in any weather is awesome, let alone freezing temps! Congrats!

    When you put eggs in the auto turner, I have to make sure the point end of the egg is facing up right?

    Well I got my salmon favs in the mail today, yes those are real thick shells. So tomorrow they go in the bator. I hope I have a hatch like yours!
