    well you won this one.. I just candled all my eggs. only I just took my light and held it behind them while they sat in safe in their turner. And now I'm more anxious because I can't see them very well... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I am hatching my own eggs from by buff brahmas and EE, started collecting 7 days prior, getting a couple a day. Totally new to this, so time will tell. I did buy an auto egg turner and after a lot of research and parts buying, I am assembling a incubator tonight. Wish me luck, I am going to need it !!

    You are making your own incubator? What kind are you building? I wanted to make one from a cooler, but i didnt trust myself to get it right (ordered the eggs before i made the incubator) so im just going to use my farm innovator one. I still will make my own, just not this go round.

    I'll post pictures when I get it finished, hopefully tonight. Currently I have an assortment of parts... Digital thermostat, temp and humidity gauge, egg turner, computer fan, light and heat pad, screen now to put it all together. I am open to any insight others may have to offer. Consistent heating is my biggest concern, how to get it right? I have heard a 40w bulb works, other ideas?
