We had just brought the incubator into the house and he feels the need to protect us from new inanimate objects. Haha.

Pug eggs!! I need those in my life! Though I don't think I can handle more than one pug. They are such fun goofy dogs though

What a beautiful little incubator! So it holds 5 dozen, that's 60 eggs. If 90% hatch that would be 54 chicks every 21 days. If you only hatched once a month, you could have 648 chicks/year!!!!
and that's why I can't have a cabinet. It looks very, very tempting though.
Now that you've done the numbers for me, that's absolutely terrifying. But it gets even worse! This thing holds 10 dozen eggs with the turners I have in there right now. I still have room for 1-2 more turners should I need to increase that. I'm going to hold off on that for a while though...

I decided not to set my two turkey eggs for the hatchalong, and wait until I can set more. Luckily, I am getting tons of chicken eggs so I still will have lots to let by next weekend.

In breeds that I know will eventually lay a 57-60g egg, I usually wait until their eggs are 50g to start setting them.
