bator questions

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Jennings Gamefowl, Jun 20, 2009.

  1. i bought a still air bator from TSC i think its the little giant everyone keeps talking bad about... but anyway i got water in the rings, the temp right at 98-99, and i have the air plugs open to let air in ..... i put some mix bardyard bantams eggs in there to test it out so i will let yall know what happens... but does all of this sound like it will work.. this is my 1st time with a bator so im a little worried about this....

    I have an LG, filled it with shipped eggs and 4 of my own light brahma eggs, and nearly all are developing. Oh and it's my first time incubating. It's still air with no tuner - I am turning by hand. So far so good! I was pretty surprised by everyone saying how hard they are to regulate temp and humidity, so far I've had no trouble. Best wishes!!!
