    *My daughters soon to be class at school has an icubator in the class, After being worried none were going to hatch today when candling we saw one moving, by the afternoon one had cracked a bit through the shell but not the membrane, and another had cracked the shell and could be heard peeping loud!

    Hopefully by morning there will be some fluffy buts waiting for the kids! Not sure how others are going, alot of dark shells so fingers crossed!

    Was so exciting, none of us wanted to go home!

    was very pleased to get to school this morning to have 2 little fluffies in the brooder. With another pipping through in the incubator. Was hoping that would have been out by the end of the day when we got back, but it hadnt moved much more, but 3 others were also starting to make their way out. Hopefully that will make 6 chicks very soon.

    Unfortunatly today is friday and will have to wait until monday to see what happens to the chicks, but its all very exciting!

    I would put the ones that have hatched into a brooder so they can eat and drink this weekend.

    Remind me again how posting about your excitement of an incubator being available on a chicken forum in the incubating/hatching section is corny? [​IMG]

    Congrats!
