    This is todays hatch.
    From a home built incubator styled from the ones i built and used back in the 80's when i used to hatch in a big way for myself and other people who needed the service.
    once upon a time I used to operate 10 of them in the basement.

    They will hold about 375 large chicken eggs each.

    this is the first hatch from this new incubator.

    hatched 65 out of 70 eggs so far one day early so will see about the remaining 5 eggs.

    Well, it ended up that 3 more hatched and the other 2 i candled and the chicks formed and aborted
    but 68 out of 70 is a good hatch rate.

    over half of the newbies have already gone to their new home and the others are awaiting their adoption this weekend . now considering hatching round 2
