    21 days a go I put 42 eggs on my bator, from 42's only 1 infertile
    on the day 18, all 41 eggs have babies inside, i am really surprise, I only candle them 2 times because I was away for 10 days

    I almost gave up with the eggs because the temperature was high 3 times (above 104F) I thought I cooked them.
    I thought I should give them a try, I am a bit upset but understand if none hatched.

    yesterday I saw few of them zipped and i had 15 babies in one day and this moning when i woke up I had another babies, I had 32 babies running around the bator
    I moved them to the brooder, they are so cute

    I was proud of my self...[​IMG] [​IMG] this the 2nd time I hatched my own baby chicks. i think it isn;t bad for the begginer hacther, i got 32 babies from 41 eggs, 3 pip but died, 5 eggs hasn't pipped yet.

    I used LG still air incubator and automatic turner
    My first time was last month, I got 20 babies from 30 eggs. They are 4 weeks old now, they are still cute

    anyway I just want to share my happines on this Easter Day, hope you have a good one too

    Happy Easter, May God bless ya'll
