I am very excited that my chicks have begun hatching! I have 24 "viable" eggs in the incubator with two hatched out already. It is very difficult to resist taking those little cuties out of the bator - but I know better! These guys are Olive Eggers (French Black Copper Marans roo x Ameracauna hen). I also have some Aracaunas and a couple of other mixes coming. Thought I'd share a couple of photos!

Thanks for the encouragement! Hopefully, yours have started to hatch now. I ended up with a 62% hatch rate, which I am happy with for my first time. Already getting ready for my next group! Please share your photos and experience!!

but I have seen 7 in the past two days wobble...today, one has been wobbling all day long and really hard wobbles too....Did all of yours wobble before they pipped? I have not seen all mine wobble. We have 12 in the incubator. I know that some can hatch a day or two late so I am just constantly looking into the windows waiting for something to happen LOL
