    I locked down tonight...3 white leg horns, 4 barred rocks, and 2 easter eggers. This is my second hatch and is going well so far, started with 12 eggs, had one infertile and 2 early quitters and every one else is moving all about. I just hope it goes better than last time...out of 12 eggs I only got 1 wonder chick...

The only reason I'm hatching again is I had a masacur 4-17 so started the bator and threw in there eggs that they laid that day

    Holy cow... Last night I checked the incubator for humidity and temp before I went to bed... All was good... No pips... I check on it first thing this morning... And a chick hatched 1 1/2 days early!!! I must have grabbed one that the mom was already sitting on! It was a clean and healthy zip/chick. Happy Mother's Day to me! [​IMG]
