    New member just bragging a little. Built incubator using a mix of ideas from thos site. First (test) hatch yielded 3 of 4 hatched wonderfully. The only one that didnt hatch wasnt fertile. 13 eggs set on 20th and ALL doing great. I had a still-air years ago and best i ever got was 20% hatch. Boosted my confidence enough to build a large incubator. Pretty much a copy of GQF sportsman with a few changes to do away with dead air spot at top. Ganna hit spring with incubators running 100% capacity.....
    Oh...and i dont have a place to put chicks, so im hatching and giving away.
