I think maybe humidity was a little high this hatch. 8 have hatched so far with 3 more pips. Due today from 25 eggs. I was hoping for ~15 like last hatch from 22 eggs but I'm starting to lose hope.
Those that have hatched are looking healthy though!

You can see a pip at the back. Second egg from the right. I'm dubious as to whether they will hatch though for some reason. I'll have to try again after Christmas!
I tried 12 light Sussex eggs from my neighbor but I took 10 out at day 14 as they were not developing

Hatching is always fun! I put my incubator away about 4 weeks ago, but I decided I had to have one more go around so I'm collecting quail eggs. Couldn't resist, lol.

Yours are cute, fingers crossed you have more hatch. Just watch the newspaper as it's a bit slippery and can cause splayed legs.

Ah right thanks for the tip! I've thrown some shredded paper in there now.
Maybe I was worried for nothing! I'm up to 11 and counting now.
