    Best incubators as of 2022 ?

    Looking for a quality QUIET(no humming or ticking) incubator that can hold at least 20 eggs. Any suggestions?

    I posted yesterday asking about some eggs & never got any replies, but I really need some help! I need to know when I should take the egg rotation device out of my incubator. How far along are these eggs? What am I looking at in the first picture? Any help is appreciated! 💕

    Helping chick out of egg shell

    When do you guys decide to interfere with a chick hatching? I have one that pipped last night and hasn’t hatched yet. I know this is normal but it hasn’t been chirping or moving like all it’s siblings did. I’m afraid it’s week or something. I can see the beak moving but not doing anything.

    Double Yolk Duck Egg

    Hello I’ve been ordering and incubating my own eggs from offline for 4 years now . Never would I have imagined to get a double yolk Egg let alone fertile ! I know the odds are against me for hatching success . But I’ll stick with it until the end . A miracle if it happens .

    Cheap but incomplete HHD/Triocottage 12-egg incubator

    So I managed to pick up one of those cheap 12-egg incubators (sold under lots of different brand names, or none at all) -- just like this one: And I bought it for a song, which is great, but it's somewhat incomplete, which is not so great, but possibly not a big problem. It's easier to list...

    Quail. We actually wanted quail first. But as things evolve and happen, quail hadn't. We got fertile hatching quail eggs as a gift. Shipped in the mail. We were so over joked and excited. When I pulled the tiny carton from the box the little eggs were so cold. Of course it's winter. My heart...

    Duck eggs

    10 little duck eggs waiting to hatch. In lockdown. Someone recommended glass gems or stones to better regulate heat. I have a large glass mug and three shot glasses. They also are holding water for humidity. As always the incubator was full cleansed after last use. Trying to watch the temp &...

    It was all planned, but we are an incubator short. Ahhh

    So I had it all planned. Lol One incubator, one crappy Styrofoam back up and as lockdown hatcher. I had both set up to incubate eggs... then our eggs got the boot from the good incubator to make way for quail eggs. So... We debated about buying another Styrofoam incubator --> but in all...
