To date this will be the largest hatch we have had. We have tried multiple times to have a large hatch, but due to circumstances beyond our control (mostly USPS) we have never had more than 50 eggs in the incubator at one time. This time, we had a total of 250 eggs shipped. Of those 78 were damaged (ok, destroyed is the better description..darn USPS).
Then due to the nature of eggs, we have gradually eliminated the "duds" or quitters so we now have 133 eggs in the incubator that are now in lockdown. Keeping my fingers crossed for a really good hatch!
here are some photos of my Hubbies great homemade incubator, and all the eggs ready to go (do not pay attention to temps or humidity, I took photo right after taking everyone out of the turner and placing them on the bottom).. Cannot wait to see eggs wiggling and babies pipping / hatching.. think this is the worst part of incubating eggs.. I end up checking on them every 5 minutes I swear!! Kids are super excited too.. especially as this is the last hatch before school starts (and maybe the last hatch of the year.. not sure about that one just yet though)
