    I do not think i will try inc again.It all started with a broody hen and getting her eggs,then after a couple of days,she did not want to set.SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i got the lg inc from tsc,Junk ,i probably need to say no more.Yep i do have 3 alive chicks,1 is doing good the other two are weak.Going to get vit today for them.I would have never got thru this with out the kindness of greengodness,she held my hand till the end of the ordeal.So i give every one credit for what they do and can do,and chicks should be at least $50.00 each! Bless u all and green godness,Darlene

    I agree. There is SUCH a hard learning curve for hatching chicks, and those styrofoam incubators only work really well if they are constantly attended, and kept in a room with a constant temperature. Better luck with your next batch.
