Okay I set my 18 Maran eggs in bator on Sunday. This will be my 2nd attempt for Marans, The eggs I got from bargin, I only got one baby out of 6. Sorry Nancy. It was my fault had a hugh spike with humidity at around day 17. I'm going with dry hatch method this time, and moved bator to lower level of our house. I dont know how it will go, Its what the girls at the Marans table explained to me I looked it up and found a good web page explaining it, so thats what I'm going with. I hope trying the different methods will help me learn which will will best practice with my Marans project.
