Hello Everyone! I just joined this site in hopes of getting help from anyone experienced with incubators. I set 14 eggs, 10 of mine and 4 of a neighbors, and they are due on the 1st of January. I bought a Farm Innovators Incubator from tractor supply after saving up my money. I'm under 18, and I have been told I'm not allowed to state my age. Well, I saved up, bought it, and rushed into incubating, and I wanted my chicks on New Years. I hope I can hatch these chicks. I have candled them, and they all seem to be alive, except for one I threw out early that didn't develop.

Lol! I bought the same incubator and I have 24 eggs in it right now and they're due to hatch on the first too. It's not a bad incubator just don't trust temp or humidity. Good luck

I bought three thermometers and two hygrometers after doing research, the incubator is 8 degrees off temp.

So, Mirajane, how did your hatch go? I saw you on the NYD HAL, but I'm having a hard time keeping up over there! My final count was 14/17, 2 quit the first week and 1 didn't make it out after internally pipping. Still, not too bad, me thinks :)

Went great for my first time! Lots of mishaps along the way, but one died very early, one got killed by a dog yesterday, and 10 in brooder, 1 just hatched in incubator. Last one I'm gonna float test now because I think he might've died late. Out of 14, 11 here now is great!
