    Couldn't be happier, my first time incubating eggs. I incubated 25 eggs and hatched 25. Talking about beginners luck.

    24 are pure Buff Orpingtons and one is a BO roo crossed with a Brown Leghorn. It's really cute.

    I have pics, but don't know how to load. Can some one brief me, I tried following the instructions on the help menu with no success.

    Not sure the brand but I bought a Styrofoam one from TSC for about $40 and the turner for about $30.

    If your like me the five days will seem endless. [​IMG]

    Matter of fact, I probably opened the thing to much when I noticed them peeking, had to count how many were and weren't peeking. My wife said I was plain goofy. [​IMG]
