    Thanks, sewing is easy if you can picture things in 3D or can follow youtube tutorials. Don't be discouraged, there is a ton of good "how to" information on the web for easy sewing projects. Most fabric stores also have beginner classes too.

    You should record that! I would love to hear it!

    That is great, I look forward to seeing yours also. I have seen pictures of Jeans blacks and they are awesome. ChickNmamma had told me the silver was a pretty color and she was right! I like that you can sex them early, now just have to grow them out.

    Just started shipped eggs and incubator Is slowly coming back up to temp. Should I keep the turner off for the first day? And if I do, will it effect the other eggs that weren't shipped?

    You can leave the turner off for up to 8 days. It will not hurt non shipped eggs.

    I would leave it off for three days.

    Happy hatching!

    Thank you ;) one other thing. About 80% of the eggs are pourus that I received. Is this because they're old? Or maybe shipping? Or just that way when laid?

    Porous is often caused by a lack of calcium in the feed. Some breeds have more porous eggs. It might be a good idea to weigh them and use the methods I posted yesterday with them. You might need to adjust the humidity because more evaporation.

    So after reading and and heading up to follow Ron's advice about putting the SN in a bowl in water I found that it had wicked onto one of the cartons holding the eggs. I didn't think things through and I quickly but gently moved them from the damp carton to a dry one. Then I panicked did I just screw everything up for those eggs?

    They should be fine! They get more moved around from a Broody so that will not be a problem. The humidity should not have changed too much with a quick move.
