    Let us all know the secrets to your incubation / hatching success. I did not do so well with my first hatch but I am going to try again.

    I have been getting really good hatches with my new Brower Top hatch I bought. It keeps the temp perfect for me and the turner rolls the eggs side to side like duck eggs are supposed to be turned. The humidity leans more to the dry side even though I have water in the bottom so I mist them daily. All my eggs are shipped call eggs so I have been very happy getting about a 70% hatch rate.

    my 3rd one hatched at 4pm today-I was just about to help since it had been 38 hours, I had a wet towel around the egg because it was shrink wrapping a little-I went in to help and noticed he was zipping so I left him and he hatched about 10 min later. Everyone looks great and is doing good
