    Well....out of the 20 eggs that the Guinea hen was hoarding, One is still viable! She came off her nest this morning so I stole all her eggs real quick and brought them in to candle. Most were rotten and early death, a couple were later deaths and one was still moving but doesn't seem strong. So, into the incubator with that one. [​IMG]


    What kind of goats are those? [​IMG]

    Wow so many posts since I've looked. I will not try to read each one though.

    So tomorrow is the dag for setting. It's very tempting to set some. But I really don't know where is put them. Stool got some four week olds in the brooder. They'd only be 7 weeks if I set these.

    I was too anxious to wait, I am just hoping for a good hatch. Even if it is a few days before Halloween.

    Put 31 eggs in our bator Wednesday and we are having issues with it, is it safe to transfer them to a new incubator? Also there seems to be a lot Of debate on the internet on the propper temp/humiditity level, what do you suggest?

    Sure, go for it, especially if you are having problems! I put mine in on Wed. night, late, too.

    A lot of us have just gone what works for us. We've hatched for yrs. And, still have problems here and there. I just had a terrible hatch after having hatched from the same gal and gotten great results, with the same bator, the same temps, and the same humidity. Shipped eggs. Guess I lucked out the first few times.

    For still air and on silkies, I don't use much humidity. Below what is suggested.
    Even on LF eggs. I go 60% or just a bit higher for lock down. During incubation, I do 30%, or just a bit higher. Not sure where you are from, or what breed you have in. Some say this makes a difference too. Like I said, I do my silkies different than what I just suggested for LF.
