    Just set my first set of eggs last night. Should hatch around the 23rd. Wish me luck. Can not wait until I see them hatch. I ordered a Hova Bator 2362N with egg turner. Temp is at 99.7 and RH is 53%. A friend gave me 15 eggs to try. Hope everything goes well!

    What do you mean dry incubation? You mean no added water ?
