    I just set my first batch into my new rite farm 3600 bator. Ran it for a week and after lowering the temp probe to the level of the top of the eggs it is dead on. Have a batch of wheaten ameraucanas from Larks Rise set in it now. Btw, Larks Rise is top notch. Eggs came with no issues and no breaks. Very nicely wrapped individual beautiful eggs. Thank you very much to Larks Rise. Now time to see how the new bator does.

    Sorry got very busy with work. The hatch went very well. Ended up with ten chicks. Was very pleased with the bator. It really was a set it and forget it type hatch.

    Curious as to hatch rate, how many did you set?

    Had 16 delivered. Three never developed, two stopped around 12 days and one pipped internally. Had ten that hatched but had one with scissor beak and lost it around 3 weeks.
