    Got the incubator all set up and warmed up and ready to go for tomorrow. Picked out a couple rhodebar eggs to throw in with my Marans. That way, even if they're mixed, they should be sex linked lol.

    Incubator all warmed up. Found out that out of 3 whole foods and 2 trader joes ZERO carry fertile eggs. My area stinks!

    And I wish that I didn't have chicken eggs that I could put in. It's so tempting!

    I spend roughly $100 a week on feed and just set 12 eggs (mine usually take an extra day to hatch) which is about 3 days worth right now. I am sure hoping I get my moneys worth, too! [​IMG]

    I do the same thing. [​IMG] [​IMG] Since I am usually doing staggered hatches, there are usually older eggs in with the newly set ones. So when I candle, I do them all.

    I'm all ready to go. Incubator is already incubating a quail egg, but I don't think it's fertile. I'll candle again this evening before tossing it. I was hoping to hatch it out on Christmas eve (oh well).

    My bators are set up and ready to go too! Tomorrow I'm setting a few from my own flock and I have 2 sets of shipped eggs supposed to arrive Saturday [​IMG] Can't wait to get them!

    OH DARN! I forgot to post that I set my eggs, but It was only an hour or so ago, so that isn't too long
