We are hatching!

                                      OUR EGGS ARE HATCHING!
 
I can finally tell you that we have some great news at last here at Eltham Hen House! We have tried two failed attempts so far at Hatching eggs - and our third attempt has been very successful - I can tell you that so far since yesterday at 12.15pm we have had 10 baby chicks hatch all alive and well out of 14 eggs - we are currently waiting on baby 11 that pipped this morning, so should come sometime soon.
 Today is day 21 - our eggs actually came early! We candled them all on day 18 and on day 19 we noticed that the eggs were moving and that 2 eggs had pipped already! We checked at 6am the next morning early on day 20 and nothing had changed, but by around 10.30am we noticed that lots more eggs had pipped and we could here cheeping coming from the incubator! At around 12 noon we noticed that the first egg was getting ready to hatch and the fun started there!
  We will keep the blog updated as to how the hatching goes and our final head count!
                                        Keep checking back for news!!!! :-)
