    Just finished my first hatch ever and it was very difficult!!! Major humidity issues. However, out of the 12 eggs that were developing after day 3, 10 hatched into beautiful, perfect, babies!!!

    Here are the little monsters now (actually only 8 are in this pic...two weren't dry yet)

    They are a living tribute to their father, Sigmund, my beautiful Golden Campine roo who was killed. I put all his fertilized eggs in an incubator that day. None of the mothers are Campines, but I think these are going to be some cuties anyway. [​IMG]
    Here he is:

    How cool is that?

    They're definitely little cuties.

    Congrats. [​IMG]

    Thanks guys. I am pretty proud of them. Two of these were actually taken from my mom's refrigerator.

    How exciting! You'll have to take progression shots, they'll change so much until they are full grown, it's always so exciting, you never really know what you'll get!

    LOL....I know, with the strange little mixes I have here, I am really anxious to see what they turn out like. [​IMG] The two from my RIR look the most like he did as a baby so I am hoping for a little roo out of those. [​IMG]

    Congratulations! [​IMG]

    I'm so happy that you have these little ones!

    Did you mark the 2 from the ice box to know if they were ones which hatched, or not?

    Thank you for sharing your good news! [​IMG]

    Thank you. [​IMG]

    Yup, sure did, and those two are going strong. [​IMG] In fact, when candling throughout the incubation, the refrigerator egg from my White Leghorn was the most active and biggest embryo. [​IMG] The other was from my EE so I couldn't see it what it was doing until it hatched. Pretty amazing, she had them in there, big end down and everything.
