    Out of 31 eggs in the bator these two have hatched a day early, the yellow & the black on the right. These two are about 8 hours old in this photo and they are dry.

    Thanks All! I have no idea why these guys came early. I'm using a HovaBator 1588 at it's pre-set temp and my electronic thermo
    eter said it was maintaining 100 degrees really steady. As of this morning I have one more egg that has pipped really well, I expect it will zip & hatch by this afternoon. The rest should start pipping tomorrow.
