    Keep all your fingers and toes crossed. I picked up all of my fertile eggs today. I put all 70 in the incubator this evening. Its my 1st time with this. I am thrilled, nervous, anxious, etc.... I have already checked on them 20 times.
    Thanks to everyone for all of their advice on helping me get started.
    I know I will have more ???? to come.

    Well I figured the odds were not in my favor from so many things that I have read. So I figured, this way I am destined to get a baby chick.
    I put in RIR, Australorp, Bardrock,Phoenix and 4 Silkies.
    I can't wait.!!!!!!!!

    Good luck to you also.
    I have no idea what I have, there is no label, no Product # anywhere that I can find. What I have is a huge red box, my daughter found it at our families barn behind some old carriages. After I had it rewired (rats), we have decided to give it a try.
    It ahs a fan, lightbulb, 2 trays for water, a wafer dial thermostat. All of this I have researched and BYC has helped me tremendously along the way.
    My hat is off to all of you.
