Welcome to Legal Tender Farm

It's day 22 and there is a peck hole, I think that might be called a "pip", in one of the eggs and Meagan and I heard some peeping.  So, despite my constant troubles with this cheap incubator, I have at least one chick hatching. 

If you look closely at the light colored egg on the left, near the bottom of the large end, you can see the pip.

Two of the eggs died for sure because they were stinking bad.  I threw those away, resisting the temptation to break them open to see if they had developed at all.  So, I have seven hopefulls left.

I had eggs similar to your eggs and tapped on one to see if there was a chick inside and the thing blew up like a bomb. Shell fragments and the worst sulpher smelling goo went everywhere. I throw the unhatched leftovers far away and some explode. Who would have thought?

Oh my. I will be handling the unhatched eggs with care.
