    So I miscounted by a day, thinking they were due Monday, but my book says Sunday.. I was going to move them to the other incubator to hatch since I have a staggered eggs in the turner tomorrow. Just heard cheeps, 2 silly buggers have already pipped. So now I'm running around trying to get the other incubator to hurry up and be warm so I can move everybody over. sheesh. I almost miss hand turning [​IMG]

    It happens to the best of us LOL, my last hatch just last week when I moved them to the hatcher they started to zip within a few minutes and after an hour I had a dozen hatch. My day's were correct they just developed faster I guess, it was a close call.

    I was given some BO eggs not long ago I incubated them and they mostly hatched on day 20. I had a surprise, one of the eggs turned out to be a splash Silkie.
