So last night was a stinky night and on top of that I've been fretting about my eggs that were supposed to hatch and didn't and what happens, I come home from visiting the neighbors to a pip w/ lots of peeps. I'm trying to not get too excited, but I had to tell someone.....

That's cool Beth. They're two days late and the one that pipped last night isn't doing anything. I'll watch a bit more, my humidity is fine but I'm back to worrying.

Congrats on your two babies, I agree that two is not enough. That's all I have right now from my first hatch and two is just too small for a flock.

I'm totally excited. One little chick is gracing my brooder and one is zipping his way along. Totally weird how long it took though, I'm on day 23. From all signs, I should get one more at least out of this hatch.

Thanks for everyone's input.

So my eggs that didn't hatch on day 21 hatched on day 23 - I have 3 new little ones gracing my sun room right now.

One blackish/grey w/ a brown head - named Florentine

One Partridge - named Sunny

One splash - named Poached

Incubating/hatching is stressful but way worth it.

Thanks everyone for your words of wisdom in 1. telling me to wait patiently and 2. to sit on my hands.
