    I candled the eggs in incubator #1 tonight. Looking good. Estimated hatch date April 13. Only had a few clear eggs. Incubator #2 i am not seeing much going on but it has not been long enough to really see anything. Estimated hatch date April 17th.

    I just put 17 eggs in my LG styrofoam bator tonight.I might add a few more tomorrow just to increase my odds and the FUN. This is my first attempt this year. I did one incubation last spring with the same bator. Hoping to hatch out Black Australorps mostly but a couple of buff orps. Last year I started my flock with eggs from our local hatchery. I am trying our own eggs this time. Grandsons ages 6, 3, and 2 are excited.

    I've had to wash some that were bad, and had a few hatch, good luck, if they came from a friend on here, you will get more. [​IMG]
