Okay an update for everyone. Out of 7 eggs and a first hatch with a new bator I got 6 beautiful chicks . They are all eating and peeping and raising a ruckus in the brooder ! I was very lucky as this was my very first hatch in a brand new bator . I can not wait to do it again either and I am so hooked on this hatching thing ! I just moved to SC and a very dear friend made me a bet about using my new bator before his girls started to lay , but I won the bet and held on until his EE's s started . So I won the bet and hatched his eggs and being my first time and to gets such incredible results I am thrilled and I am so ready to do it again right now !
