    36 going into the 'bator tomorrow( the most we have ever tried hatching... Yay)... Should hatch April first, which would be awesome since it is both my GF's, and her kid sister's B-Day...

    Hey that is awsome, I also will be hatching on April 1st. It was accidental but it will be great to have them born on that day. I only set 25 eggs, 2 were not fertal and looks like one has a blood ring. But that is ok, this is my first hatch. Good luck to you.

    wow... turned out to be our worst hatch to date... 30 made it to lock down, we were so psyched... but only two hatched ... the rest dead in the shell... looked like they didn't make it past day 18 for some reason... not really sure what went wrong [​IMG]...
