    weird thing did happen today.....out of the 71 eggs i set in my fridge bator, i already took out 14 of them because they started piping....they weren't due till the 28th-29th if i remember correctly......good thing i had at hand the 2nd bator i have on lockdown with my black sexy lingk/jersey giant eggs which is also piping so i set them 14 eggs in there with their humidity at 75% hopefully they do well ....crossing fingers...........[​IMG]

    i think what happened is that my neighbor took a while to collect the eggs at his farm and since it's been hot down here in south texas those eggs i got from him for my incubator some were already incubating themselves by the heat of the day....that's the only logic idea i can come up with .....so those eggs were already 4 to 5 days incubating themselves by the heat of the day and that's why they were early pippers.....like i said good thing i had another batch on lockdown due tomorrow so i just added them to that batch.......[​IMG].......i was running like crazy trying to get them to my bator with it's ideal humidity 75% where i have my other batch.....[​IMG]

    ok....so we got 3 chicks out of the fridge bator eggs i moved in to my lockdown bator.....black sex link eggs are pipping but not zipping yet.......here some pics of my 3 mutts so far....2 of them naked necks.....[​IMG]....had to move them to my 3rd bator the one i just sett eggs on the 21st because the one on lockdown had the fan too close to the chiciks and could get hurt....i'll do an adjustment tomorrow after all eggs hatch.
