    These eggs are half of what was promising to be a wonderful hatch of Appenzeller Spitzhauben's and Brabanter's. These are from OKCarla's eggs.

    My two year old decided to help Mommy's "chippie's" to "catch". (Chicky's hatch) And tweaked the temp up to 129 degrees in one incubator (LG) and 104 overnight on the Hovabator.

    I lost all of the AS's and Brabanter's in the LG and have kept my finger's crossed on the AS's in the Hova.

    Technically they are due on Mon. I woke up to 3 pips, so I am wondering if the night of spiked temp might have hurried them along a bit.

    PS The two year old is out of solitary now.

    My two year old tried to help by shaking the eggs while I had them out candling, and then she tried to chip them open with a screwdriver looking for the baby chicks inside. [​IMG] Two is such a great age. [​IMG]

    I hope some of your eggs hatch! I got two hatchery Spitzhaubens and I love them, they are so sweet and fun to look at.
