    Go to the library and get a book. Read. Read. Read.

    Then buy a Hovabator 1588 with a turner . Don't fool with the cheap basic ones.

    Do it right and be prepared from the start and you won't be disappointed.

    Have you checked into the hatching egg care guide sticky in this catagory? I love my brower top hatch. the only problem is the flashing light (comes on when the heat is on) and the motor. I do plan to buy the 1588 hovabator one day. Good luck and cant wait to hear what eggs your going to get [​IMG]

    Quote:I agree with everything that Missprissy said.....plus I'd like to add DON'T get discouraged. If you can start with some of your own fertilized eggs or eggs that are locally purchased you'll probably have better luck and won't have wasted so much money on shipped eggs until you have some experiance. It's a learning process for us all.
