    We've got nine babies now - all eating (which is a good job as the trainer chicks are yet to hatch [​IMG]:gig! Two left in the incubator with just pips. So exciting! Out of 12 eggs, they all developed. One died shortly before lockdown, and of those that made it to lock down, all are making progress. I know I can't count the two remaining yet but so far so good! [​IMG] Nine out of 11 is a pretty good hatchrate regardless of if the two remaining hatch or not! [​IMG]

    Just worried about the brooder at the mo. Because they all came early, I didn't get the chance to run the brooder for the planned 48hrs prior to hatch so am now struggling to get a decent temp in there - they are either too hot or too cold. I'm keeping a close eye on them though and adjusting where necessary. [​IMG] they all survive![​IMG]

    Gonna grab a pic of them in the brooder to share on the "show off your poults" thread [​IMG]
