    If you want eggs by April or May you should incubate now.
    I use R-COM King Suro 20. Incubator it takes 24 chicken eggs. it is fully automatic and I get good results with it. It is "fire and forget" incubator, I don't candle eggs. the only intervention I do is at the beginning of day 19 I change the settings and stop turning. I like this incubator, but this is the only incubator I know
