I just finished my 1st hatch of Auracanas. Got 1 live rumpless chick out of 16 eggs. Ordered on ebay. Payed for 6 and got 16 well wrapped good looking eggs. Seller said that they are difficult to hatch and that chicks can die at the end or after birth because of the zygochromal gene mutation. Thing is I also used an LG still air and am hearing awful things about them. I have an autoturner and the temp and humidity stayed constant. Set some BCMS among others today. Thought about getting a Hovabator or a Brinsea and move my hatch but wanted to check on here first. What is the hatch rate for Auracanas and what is better a Hovabator or a Brinsea.? This is probably going to be my last hatch for a while.

Good luck with your hatch. I was happy to get at least one chick. Had to go to the feed store to get her a brooder buddy. What incubator are you using?
