Thanks to all of you who responded to my questions in the last 30 days. This was my first hatchattempt. I sat 38 eggs in a used Hovabator w/ turner. I candled at day ten but the brown eggs were to dark for a newbie to really see. I did find two that glowed so I knew they were not fertile, leaving me with 36 eggs. Using the carton method I hatched 35 complete chicks, lost only one, I think the others sat on him and had one upside down that pipped, but didn't make it out. I now have Pure Partridge Cochins, Pure Black Marans, and a mix of Amercuna, Delaware, Wyandotte, Cuckoo MAran and Austrolorp. Don't know what I'll do with them.Besides love them. Thanks again to all.
