    FINALLY! After 2 completely failed hatches, I decided to try one last time. I had 12 turkey eggs, 6 buff orpington chicken eggs, 14 cortunix quail eggs, 6 saxony duck eggs and 7 Welsh Harlequin duck eggs (all set to hatch on the same day) to start. On lockdown, (today) I had 10 cortunix quail eggs, 1 welsh harlequin egg and 1 buff orpington egg left (all the rest were clears, think they got too hot during shipping). I go downstairs a few hours after I set the eggs for lockdown to find a chicken!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    He's 2 days early but he seems healthy, certainly is peeping up a storm. Now to wait and see what else pops out [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Whats funny if the chicken was the one I was fairly certain wasn't going to hatch. It had a funky air cell, it looked regular on the end and then it looked like it dripped down the side of the egg. It was so big I didn't see how a chicken in that egg could be big enough to break out, but he's a good size chick!
