I'm so excited but trying not to get my hopes up too high. I'm useing some pullet eggs & some (much) older hens eggs I thought were spent/ stopped laying in heat of 2012 summer! They surprised me & started laying again when I brought home the roo's. I have a little giant still air incubator. I have to keep telling my self that I may not get any chicks- so many factors & things can go wrong plus I am a newby. I didn't even turn eggs the4 days I had them stored. Cool area pointy end down but thought I only start turning once they were in bator. Oh well, we will see.
