    The day you set the eggs can be counted as day 0. The next day will be day 1. How are you doing? Did you make an incubator? I wish you the best of luck!

    yes i did. i now have two chicks due to hatch on the 12th and 13th[​IMG] not peeps eggs thow. They are been's and snowpuddle's. witch been is not laying anymore! i don't know why the only thing that i changed was the food. [​IMG] so i took some of the duck food(dry cob) and gave it to them to night. the duck food is what the chicken food was. The food now is layer feed.
