Brinsea mini advance incubator hatching photos

The first time I used my incubator, I had a complete failure (problem was with the eggs, not the incubator). This time I had five eggs hatch out of six.

When I got home from work there was one chick hatched and another two hatched shortly after. (I think the second two waited for me to get home so I could watch them.)

Then another one pipped. You can see the little egg tooth peeping out.

Then it zipped it’s way around the egg.

Then it pushed on the shell to make enough room to get out.

Hello world.

Exhausted and time for a sleep. After all, the pip did start at 7pm and the chick greeted us at 1:30am. Ah, hrrm, yes, well I did sit up watching the whole time. It was my first hatch after all. One of the previous chicks pipped, zipped and greeted us all within 20 minutes. These are Speckled Sussex chicks.

  1. Yay! Congrats! So fun to see the photo progression! I would have been watching the whole time too. If you are anything like me… You won’t be getting much else done for the next few weeks. 😉

  2. Reblogged this on TBN Ranch and commented:
    Is the Brinsea Mini Advance incubator a good choice? Here’s your answer… 🙂
