    I think the hardest part was waiting until they looked dry enough to come out! Of the first ones due of 14 had 0 hatch.....so I thought they all died. These are 6 out of 30. I am hoping we get a few more. I am very happy. With the power outage the temp went down to 85 for hours then 14 hours later down to 92. Eggs were also moved twice in the truck just before hatch.
    So....I am considering this a good hatch.
    Then we added them to the brooder....
    And this was the reaction of the mean Hamburgs.
