    I can't believe I had 40(out of 240 set) a&m fuzzies hatch from the badly packaged shipment...Honestly, I really didn't think any would hatch.

    I had 79 Jumbo Bobs hatch from 100 eggs...from JimsBirdHouse Packs very well BTW.

    I had 10 Snowflake Bobs hatch from 32 eggs(had several that were clear).

    I have to get another brooder tub ready tomorrow...I really didn't expect that many to hatch.

    Now I guess the hard part is ahead of me...raising them.

    Update:

    Had a few more come out of the shell [​IMG]

    New totals(so far):

    56 out of 240 a&m

    79 out of 100 jumbo bobs

    18 out of 32 snowflake bobs ( I was glad to see 8 more of these in the tray, made the hatch % much better )[​IMG]

    I am going to wait until tomorrow for any more slackers, then clean out the trays.
