I'm up for all the suggestions I can get. I get the bator tomorrow. I'll try and find the time to put it all together. read the instructions. Find a nice place to put it. I may need to disable the ceiling fan in my room because I don't want it to get drafty! Lets see the hatching tray for the 1588 holds 6 X 7 so that's 42. I'll be getting: 6 Ameraucana (hopefully all Blue Wheaten) 6 Cuckoo Marans & 6 Salmon Faverolles from pasofino farms. Then I'm getting 18 from bargain it will be mostly leghorns with a 3 or 4 speckeled sussex thrown into the mix. I pray the PO is kind to all of them. Then I'm putting at least 6 of our EE's little blue/green eggs in. Do little pullet eggs hatch? She's only been laying for about 2 weeks and we only get an egg every other day. I opened her third one and it was fertile. The first two are in the fridge and DW used one for cookies so we have three now and waiting for three more. She's been bred by a black China Game and by our 21 week old EE roo "Spotty" I don't even know if he's mature enough to deliver the goods but he's been doing his thing with her. Do you think I can get 10 to hatch out of 42 eggs. I'm hoping.
