Yesterday was day 21 for 2 eggs that I set using a homemade bator heated from the bottom with a reptile heat mat and from the top by a nightlight sized bulb backed with foil, both hooked up to a horticultural heat mat thermostat. I added a computer fan with a built in throttle control that's evened out the temp incredibly. I was getting a little antsy, it's my first hatch and all was quiet yesterday but today I woke up to a pip! Little worried because I received 18 eggs in the mail that came earlier than expected and I only have one incubator. I let them rest for 24 hours and set them last night. Fingers crossed!Edited by Plucky Clucks - 1/9/16 at 5:26pm
