    I got an incubator 2 days ago and an assortment of hopefully fertile eggs!
    We are eggcited but I've got a whole bunch of reading before they get here tonight. Hope we have a wonderful batch. Wish us luck, we're gonna need it.

    A lot of people use an Acurite themometer/Hygrometer that can be found at Wal-Mart for $10- $12. Humidity is just as important as the temp. and this has readings for both.

    How exciting for you. I have an accurite and a Spot check I got on Ebay. The spot check has a probe I insert into the vent hole.

    What breeds are you getting? A Delaware or two I hope. lol
