Setting eggs this weekend (Jan5/6) WHOS WITH ME! - Page 4

post #31 of 2024
I'm in! I have 14 cream leg bar eggs arriving either tomorrow or Sat. This is my first hatch EVER and I'm nervous. Yes I've done it all wrong so far with the first hatch ... the eggs are prized and shipped! I may need a lil bit of hand holding!

Glad to have you both join us! Dont forget to take some pics along the way.  And we all can help each other, as mentioned above all hatches turn out different.

 

Kunjun you are very brave doing your test hatch with 14 shipped cream legbar eggs. I hope you get a good hatchfl.gif and cant wait to see those babies.

I'll join! 12+ FBCM eggs en route as I type. We are so excited, but also nervous as this is our first hatch. Incubator warmed and thermometer is being calibrated. I am wondering if I need to get a fan as it is the still air model??
