    Candled 136 eggs today, I have in my homemade incubator, with 3 auto turners.
    It is day 11 and I only had 6 infertile eggs and 1 red ring. All others very active. These are all my eggs from my mixed flock. I have 45 hens and 3 roosters . I am surprised at the amount of eggs both fertile and developing . What is the average success rate you guys get with successful hatching?
    I will update later.
     
  2. Holy COW 136! You have some patience!

    Good luck!
