    I set 36 eggs in the bator, now on day 22, 29 have hatched:yiipchick. Is this a good result? I am not going to give up the rest until day 25. These were Barred Rock and RIR's I bought from a local guy. Since this is my first trip around the incubating block, I was not sure what were good numbers. Thanks for the input.[​IMG]

    One more just started zipping!

    That is better than good! Congrats. Now if you can repeat that performance, you are officially a "pro hatcher".

    I guess we will find out in April. I plan to set 4 dozen to hatch for Easter. I will be getting buff oprpingtons this time from the same fellow. Thank you.

    I forgot to give credit where it is due.
    THANKS to BYCers! I could not have done it without all the great info I got from the posts.[​IMG]

    Thanks to those who told me to wait until day 25 before giving up on an egg!
