Hi Folks, To make a long story even longer, I had 21 eggs in the monster bator. Temps got all kinds of wacked out and I thought I cooked the eggs beyond all hope. Yesterday was day 22 and not a pip. I usually get pips on day 19-20, so I knew I had killed them. I was going to clean out the bator and try again. Then the phone rang and cleaning the bator out slipped my mind. Well, this morning as I was getting my coffee, I heard something. I thought crap, I forgot to clean the bator yesterday> I looked in and saw one chick just about out of the shell. It was chirping up a storm. I thought to myself "no freaking way". So this evening should be interesting to see if anymore are going to hatch. Lesson here is....Just be patient and give the little ones time. All hatches are not the same. Hopefully I will have more than one hatch, but even if not, I know now to wait the 25 days as everybody had been telling us to do on this forum. You guys/gals are awesome.
