    This is great! I agree with Sally, start a thread! Would love to see how this works. My DH can make anything. :)

    Well, set my eggs. I have them laying down. If things get crazy busy again, will put them back into the turner at a later date. Not too worried about it, she gave me 18 eggs. Wow. I have a lot of chicks this winter. I don't normally hatch through the winter, just for the NYD hatch a long, those would be my only winter chicks. I got carried away, ey?

    I will sometime this weekend, and will add a link to the youtube video I used when I do. Will add to my signature when I start it.

    Whew...I'm having a hard time to keep up...(and I don't like posting several posts at a time. Makes me look like I'm hogging the thread) [​IMG]

    I just want to say that I'm SOexcited for everyone receiving their shipped eggs, and getting their layed eggs, getting their incubators ready...and just in general getting everything ready! [​IMG]


    I'm SO excited to be a part of this holiday hatch!! Just so freakin cool!!!!

    This is my first attempt at hatching eggs. I have a still air incubator with a fan. With NO WATER in the thing, the humidity is at 36%. I live in an inland valley in Southern California - it's DRY HERE!!! How do I get the humidity level down? It has stayed steady at 36% for the past 2 weeks. Will a 36% humidity hurt them? Is there any way to lower the ambient humidity?

    Thanks!!!!

    I have only ever hatched shipped eggs until now (i have a mix of shipped and home grown). I put mine in the bator early, bc i was worried about age and viability of the eggs. Its two days as of tonight, and ivwas going to add more from my swedes tonight too. Can i change from auto turner and lay them flat? I dont want to hurt the embryos that might be developing.

    I would love to! It is a little late for that (over here it is already 8 in the evening).. Maybe I can find some quail eggs. They are only 18 days :D

    I lost one my first hatch like this.
    Careful as I tried to be
    I wax sealed it, but I'm pretty sure the shock killed it.
    It stopped development and I was heartbroken as I killed it

    You can turn that maybe into a yes.
