    Hello all, thanks for the warm thoughts and prayers. Pops is doing good. Very sore this morning, his knee is the size of a grapefruit and everything feels bruised but he's very positive. [​IMG]

    Uglybator is looking good, I have been turning my eggs every time I come up the stairs for something, I was amazed when someone said a hen does it 20+ Times a day, so I figured I'd try! Haha. Temp is running 99.5-100.6 and humidity reads 36% and 40% depending on what thermometer you look at [​IMG]. So everything is looking great! I have a really nice speckled egg that I really hope hatches a nice little hen!

    I actually have this incubator and the manual is right in front of me. If you would like I can send you a picture of the pages. The buttons on mine are in different places, but I bet it operates the same way :)

    My goose eggs arrived yesterday! Yay! While I was opening the box my boyfriend asked "how long until we have chicks?" I told him 2 ducklings should hatch next week. He said "Just two? I want a lot of chicks!" lol! He has built them a cute run in his shed/man cave and built thir coop outside (and for my ducks I already have). He always wants to let all the ducks out in the yard. He even build an "incubation office" for me upstairs ...he may be my worst enabler. Lol! I hope he remembers that he asked for "A lot of chicks" when I end up being able to hatch all the eggs...Lol!
