    Okay, I just set my first eggs EVER. I'm so excited and nervous. I have a Hova Bator 1590. I found it on craigslist for $45. The nice man even threw in an "extra" incubator for hatching or for a brooder. I can't wait. Here we go.... [​IMG]

    Wish me luck.

    I am such a nervous dunce! [​IMG]

    I think when I am posting other ones appear & then I don't read them right cause I can't think right now...gee wonder why? [​IMG]

    I would love to get both the BO & BR's .....that's what I am getting in the spring & maybe a couple more hardy breeds for egg laying.

    I have the hova-bator 1588 too. The pic of the bator....very nice looking! Sounds like a nice deal.

    I wish you all luck!

    Ozark - easier said than done. Ha! I want to open it now....Just keep reminding me, step away from the bator. LOL!

    Cyn, hopefully things will go well on our hatches. We can trade eggs later...BRs for silkies!! [​IMG]
