    You can start with this link. It has 2 links in there on incubating and brooding.
    I hope this provides you with the assistance you are looking for.

    Thank you all so much I had 40 eggs hatch! 35 of them lived. They are now laying eggs and I am getting about 15 eggs a day, most of them were males. Here they are today

    That is a fantastic strike rate 35 from 40 survive. Looks like you have a great set up there too. Like the idea of having half wire and half bedding. Did you buy the eggs or did you breed them your self? They all look super healthy and good condition

    I bought the eggs at a chicken auction. I just had 2 eggs from them hatch yesterday! I will try to post a picture when I get home. I like the set up too.I use hay now but still sprinkle some shavings in there because it smells better and they love to play in it.[​IMG]
