I will turn my 25 eggs for the last time this afternoon. I am so hoping for more success this time--in the past, I've often done what I've come to understand is a very fatal error...opened the bator the last 3 days. SO, I'm NOT going to do that this time plus I think I've had better luck with my humidity this time.

Just wondered who else is going to be watching the next couple days?

I'm moving 15 cuckoo marans from the bator to the hatcher tonight. Fingers crossed as I have had some temp fluctuations and those dark eggs are impossible to candle!

BTW-I have 2 other eggs to move to the hatcher in 2 days. I'm so dreading opening it to add those two, but since the hatcher is a genesis I'm hoping it will recover quickly.

Just removed the turner last night. Have 7 shipped Black Copper Marans, and 10 of my own - Ameraucana x Rhode Island Red. This is my first time hatching my own eggs, so it is pretty exciting!! I can't wait to see what the cute little chicks will look like. I set 10 eggs, and all are still in there. No losses so far. On the BC Marans, I started with 12 and removed 5 at 14 days; they had all died in the first week. I'm really keeping my fingers crossed (and off the bator) for the other 7!!
