    are your air cells demanding less humidity? @Jessimom

    you can lay them flat carefully after marking a side of them so you know which way you turned and whenever you wish to, it would be just like a turning, and a quick cool cycle is good for the eggs. just make sure you have time to turn them enough when switching them over to hand turning as we discussed @the jolly onion

    cots would work too !!

    awesome breeds!!

    all air cells intact eh bama? good for you!!!

    Thank you, but I'm pretty sure there are faster and easier ways to get eggs for me, cause I live in Denmark [​IMG]

    Welcome!

    I hope you find some nice ones.

    @vehve is in Finland, maybe he knows more about getting hatching eggs?

    Quail eggs? Just buy them at the store. That's what I'd do here. Not great hatch rates, but I guess you would get something around 15-20%. Of course, I know about as much about acquiring hatching eggs in Denmark, as Ron knows of acquiring them in Haiti.

    Venlig hilsen, Gonzo!

    When I get my hydrometer and thermometer do I need one with or without the wire?

    Did you set all of the eggs or just the ones from your friend?
