    Been lurking here for since I decided to build a bator & hatch eggs. This has helped build patience. Anyway, thanks for all the great info & right on sschedule, my first baby this morning.

    Have a homemade bator & a neighbors LG to which I added a fan, & so far eggs pipping in homemade but not LG. The homemade hung in at a constant 99 degrees (digital doesn't read tenths), & LG fluctuated more. Can't figure out photo's from my phone so I'll post the little guy later.

    More on they're way - and good thing, this little bird seems lonely & is good at expressing it. [​IMG] He's dried off now & makes noise every time I visit.

    Quote:Kind of embarassed to say. Ended up setting 100, got from a guy in Omaha,NE, that's why I had to make a bator. Glad I did though, it's been lower maintenance than the LG. Since I ordered online I was (am) unsure what kind of hatch/survival rate I'll have.

    How many's a load?
