    They eggs went in the 'bator about fifteen minutes ago. The temps stayed at 100.1 and humidity at 43% all night last night, so I went ahead and put them in.


    The temps dropped and so did the humidity after the eggs went in, I'm guessing it will regulate itself again after a bit? I'll go check on it. So, I set nine of my own eggs. Keep your fingers crossed, guys.

    I've never hatched myself but, have read many of the posts and from what I gather the temps will regulated themselves and your not to do anything for the first hour or so.

    Good luck with your hatch!

    hi newchick,

    if my memory serves me correctly, I think "x" in your avatar is 5.

    BTW, i put 11 eggs in the bator about 1:00am Monday morning, added another sebright yesterday afternoon, and If I get another sebright or cochin today, they will go in as well.
