After an incredibly easy hatch, a very difficult one… : (

I messed up the dates and although 17 showed good just before the hatch only 6 made it and it took forever… : (

24 eggs in the incy 18th March, 12 each from two different sources.

At 7 days the eggs were candled showing 8/12 and 11/12 as ok. Another one of the first lot were removed at 19 days and then another just before the hatch leaving 6/12 and 11/12, 17 in all.

Of the 17 only 6 hatched over the course of 6 days, only one from the first group.
