Just wanted to share my first time experience with hatching eggs. I used the Rcom mini incubator and had a wonderful experience throughout the whole process. I incubated 2 Ameracauna/Black Copper Marans mixed eggs, 1 Jersey Black Giant/Black Copper Marans egg, and one button quail (one of my female button quail died so I decided to incubate her first and only egg in rememberance.) I was a nervous/excited wreck for about 22 days. I'm so grateful for this site though. It was nice to know that whenever I had a question about the incubating and hatching process I could just come here and type it in and find the answer. Well on the 21st day they finally started to pip (the button quail pipped the day before but waited a full 28 hours before zipping!) All of them did wonderful. My husband had to help a couple of them out of the shell a little but barely did anything at all. Those little chicks are such champs. As of yesterday morning I am the proud mama if 4 little chicks. I had a 100% hatch rate. They are all doing so well. Super healthy and active with perfect little feet. It was a complete success. Now I know why people on here get addicted to this stuff. It is so satisfying watching them finally breaking out of their shells and taking their first steps after caring so attentively for their eggs. If anyone hasn't already tried incubating and wants to, I strongly recommend it.
