Default So very excited!

Hey all,
Bit excited, well bit is a understatement! My chicken eggs have started to hatch! Theres about 8 pipped, 1 of them is nearly out, and the rest are still just the same, we have about 25 in there, but no worries, there not due till tomorrow. They're all pekin, but many different colours, including gold patridge, reds, blues, lavender and some more.
This is about our 5th hatch, but first hatch this year, and our first hatch in our new Brinsea Hatchmaker!
I would get photo's up, I just took some, and then the battery died
Just thought I'd share my excitement, I'll try to get some photo's up tomorrow!
Thanks,
Tom

Yep, there all doing great! I can't count how many, they just keep moving around, I'd say about 15 though.

No worries!
Well, at the moment, we bought some plant trays, then wire netting around it. But we had considered using storage boxes with mesh lid, or just a wooden box with mesh lid.
We had about 32 eggs in there, and out of 32, 22 hatched.
Really pleased with this hatch!
Cheers,
Tom
