    [​IMG] i can't believe it. I set 42 eggs in the incubator. 8 were duds that i could see. so i was left with 34 questionable eggs. Some of the eggs were so dark that it was hard to tell but i just left them in anyway just in case. Well, 20 have hatched so far and there may be a few more on the way. I did not expect to have so many hatch [​IMG]. What am i going to do with all these baby chicks? I already have about 40 chickens [​IMG]. The baby chicks that hatched are mixed breeds from my flock. Some of the baby chicks turned out beautiful. Some are a little strange looking but are cute all the same! I will post some pics tonight. I am just so amazed beacuse my last hatching experience was horrible. Anyway i guess i got the hatching thing down [​IMG]
