    DerbyChook, I LOVE that you put that embryo progression chart on the wall there, for your kids!! That is SO nifty!


    Good luck with your eggs!

    Well, that looks so neat! And how cute--it's great you've got the kids involved! I would have loved that when I was young. Good luck with your hatch![​IMG]

    The kids are LOVING this. It was their idea to put the chart up. They taped a pencil next to it so they could mark off the days [​IMG]

    Congrats how neat, I love that the kids are so involved and love the progression chart.

    I actually set 30 eggs today in my hovabator genesis. I set 7 black copper marans, 16 Olive eggers, and 7 cochin mixes.

    Best of luck to you on your hatching journey! Hope you keep us updated as you go along.
