Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by twigg, Feb 6, 2009.
Last hatch was 100%, so we will see.
Incubator is homemade, camera is Panasonic.
What kind of eggies are they? And what day are you on? Thanks, and i'll be watching! LOL
what's better than chicken tv? Egg hatching tv!
Are they due today?
Eggs are Buff Orpington, and about day 19/20.
We lost our rooster three weeks ago, so I grabbed the most recent eggs and put 11 in the incubator.
At day 7, one was clear and all the others were fine, so we will see.
Quote:Tomorrow, I think.
We are a little more relaxed about timing things to the hour than we were when we first started. I stopped the turner yesterday, and increased the humidity to 70%. They will come when they are ready.
I wouldn't be surprised to see the first pip tonight, nor concerned if they don't pip until tomorrow. We know the incubator is fine, and it has run the last three weeks flawlessly, so we wait
I've got a page somewhere about building the incubator, I'll dig out the link later.
lol .... link is in my sig
I love being able to control the cam. Thats great.
Twigg- how do you set something like this up? I have eggs on day 9 now and would love to be able to watch them hatch!
The camera is a Panasonic Network Camera. It connects wirelessly to our home network from inside the incubator, and you stream from there when you click the link.
Cam is about $250, I think.
Usually the camera is in my workshop, but I can move anywhere it is in range of the router.
Pan/Tilt and Zoom are standard features. It carries audio too, but I figured y'all don't want to hear the chatter in our house
