    I set my first batch of eggs, i won them on an auction here. They are from peachick, blue wheaton americauna's (sp). One egg out of 15 broke in shipping, I set 14 on the 22nd and just candled the batch this morning, pulled one out with no development it had a broken air Cell. i will candle them again on the 9th of july and then lock them down. they are due around the 13th ....... hmm...... 13 eggs due on the 13th..... gosh i hope its not a bad sign!!.

    temps are prety steady around 99-100 and humidity 47+ im trying to get it a tad higher.
