    100% That's great! Congratulations. I have some due to hatch tomorrow. I usually see a pip by now. Hope those little stinkers are just waiting for hatch day.

    Im currently collecting a few eggs to run a test batch before the EHAL and was wondering how dirty is too dirty not to set? One of my hens laid outside of the nest box and near a puddle of muddy water and of course the egg rolled into the water. I picked it up and dabbed at it with a dry cloth.

    Just got off the phone to Brinsea. They told me there's no need to lay the eggs down, apparently commercial hatcheries hatch standing up all the time??
