    I am so,so,so suprised!! I was just out messing around in the garage and I heard peeping coming from my incubator. And Sure enough our first chick hatched!!! I wasnt expecting to have them start hatching yet, it is like the 19th day. He looks great, he is wet still, but he is moving around, and is out of his shell. THe first batch I tried I wasnt sure what I was doing and I ended up getting the humidity to high and they were born with their intestions out side of their bodies. Now I am keeping my fingers crossed that the rest of them hatch out healthy to. It is really hard not to open the incubator and hold our new baby. I cant wait now to see the rest of them start as well. Any way wish us luck, and I am going to see if I can get some pictures to show you the new baby.
