    Out of 29 eggs, I had 4 hatch. Not such a great percentage. [​IMG]

    But my babies are very cute. I had one Blue Ameraucana, two Splash Ameraucanas, and one Cuckoo Marans named Obama.




    It was a great learning experience and I can't wait to get my next batch of eggs the first week of July.

    I opened up all the remaining eggs, and most looked like they stopped about day 4-5. There were two that died around day 10. Not sure what the problem was, except that they were shipped eggs. [​IMG]
