I got 9 little lavender orps out of 12 eggs in a little giant incubator! Not bad for a first timer!
We lost one of the nine, I blame my lack of sleep and inexperience. I had read on another post that they put containers of water with sponges in them to wick the water up to rise the humidity in the incubator. So I put a small bowl in there. As soon as the little bugger hatched I walked away for a bathroom break and he/she fell in the bowl. It was too late by the time I got back. Lesson learned, ONLY putting the sponge in next time and using my 1/4 inch tube and water bottle to wet the sponge.
So I have 8 lively happy lav orps running around the brooder as I type.
Thanks to everyone that takes the time to post tips on here, they are priceless to have when starting out.
