This is my first chick hatch in years since hatching geese. I am using my brand new Hovabator Genesis 1588. This morning I set 40 eggs. 35 Black Australorps and 5 Easteregger crosses. 9 of the eggs were mine and the 31 BA's were shipped. WISH ME LUCK! I will try to update this thread thru candling results on the 6, 13, 18th day, and of course the hatch. Thank you hot2pot, spydertoys, chickenjunkie, and nursecat9 for all your help and advise. Now the watching paint dry begins for 21 days!
