I just purchased an incubator and bought some fertile eggs from a local breeder to hatch! I am getting some Black Copper Marans and pure bred Ameraucana's. I have been researching and learning as much as i can to get this right and i want the colorful eggs. I am picking up my eggs this Saturday and i should get the incubator before the end of the week. I purchased a Little Giant with the egg turner and candling light. I would love impute from those that do this alot any and all advise appreciated.
We have built a big coop with large enclosure for my flock i am awaiting chicks from a hatchery that were shipped today and should be here by the end of the week i also bought 6 meaty's from TSC that are thriving and growing fast and will be processed for us to eat. I did loose one of those so 5 left so i am starting with both live chicks and eggs crazy or what! I have had chickens as a child so this is all not completely new to me but it's been a while and this board is amazing with info. Now this will be my first time hatching anything so i am very excited about that anything i should be aware of?
