Well, due to some issues with the new "cabinet cooler bater" , regulating the temp & trying to make a turner, I didn't set eggs at I'd planned on Saturday.
I ended up just getting 3 auto egg turners at TSC & cutting off one row, so they'd fit inside the incubator. Then, found another fan, to help circulate the air, as the 2 computer fans weren't moving the air enough. By the time that was done, it was bed-time on Saturday.
Ended up setting eggs Sunday evening (between 5pm & 8pm, due to having stop for supper).
So, I'm calling day one as 3/7, b/c they probably didn't start incubating until this early am.
It was so hard to choose which ones to incubate, as I'd been saving up all week, even after candling them to remove any "imperfect" eggs.
I'll post the exact #'s of each group set, but to my surprise, when I added all the eggs together, the calculator read "100" !!
Well, it was 96, but I thought what's four more?! I've never set that many! But, I figure it's testing out the new incubator, which there's no guarantee they'll hatch or not.
So, I'm half expecting them not to all hatch, since the temperature isn't as consistent throughout as I'd like.
That doesn't count the 8 turkey eggs I set, for a test hatch, since I'm not sure if they're fertile. But, since they're not hatching on the same day, they aren't included in the Easter Hatch-A-Long.
