    Well, the first hatching I did I got a hatch rate of 77% and thought that was good. This time, only my second time, i got 41 out of 45 on day 21. That's a 91%. I'll see if any more hatch in the next day or two. Wow I am just so excited![​IMG]

    Quote:I have a Little Giant 10200 Forced Air incubator with the Egg Turner added. I just put them in and turned it on. Stopped eggs turning on day 19. One hatched night of day 19, one on morning of day 20, 3 on evening of day 20. Then the explosion of all but 5 eggs. The poor incubator was full of broken eggs and fluffy little pipping babies.[​IMG]
