    Wish me luck as I try to hatch my first batch of shipped eggs....from my Hova-bator 1583 with auto turner. I have BCM, Lemon Blue Cochin, Columbian Wyandottes and Barnevelders set in the bator. I have three thermometers and hygrometers! So hopefullly I wont mess this up toooooooooo bad. I hoping for at least a 25% hatch. [​IMG] Please wish me luck! Set date was 5-13-2010! So I guess all I can do is wait right now! [​IMG]

    Oh my Lord dont I know it! I'm just so glad my bator has such a big window! I would be opening it ever half hour if not for that. Temp is a nice 99 to 100 so far and 45% to 47% on humidity.
