    Well I have a fan but no turner so I am with you there. Mine are in a egg carton that I cut up for air to get to the eggs, so I have been putting something under each end to prop it up so I don't have to take the time to turn each one.

    My first hatch...ever. I hope it hatches on the 21 or 22 (I don't know if I am counting the days right I started them Feb. 28th.) See other post about getting the incubator too hot I might not have any hatching [​IMG]

    Yep I am from Hutchinson, KS. My dad lives in wichita, I went to school there.

    Yay we have starting a nice little groupfa to hold hands with, because I am already nervous! I am dieing for another couple days to candle for the first time to see how many are even fertile.

    I started my eggs the night of 3/1, so hopefully we will all hatch around the same days. What kind of incubator is everyone using?

    My chicks are due on the 20th. I can't wait. This is going to be the longest month ever. I also have my eggs in cartons, but my shelves shift back and forth so I have just been shifting them 3 times a day. Humidity has been about 50 and temp about 99 so I feel as if everything is going ok for now!!![​IMG]

    I've got eggs under broody hens - both clutches set to hatch March 20/21. Our BO is sitting on 11, and the Buff Leghorn/Cochin cross is sitting on 6.
