    Thank you all! Yes, it is super cool to hatch my own, can't wait to see how they turn out [​IMG]

    I have the Brinsea Octagon Pro20 with the DX package. My DH got it for me for an early birthday present, I was geeked! I immediately began collecting some of our eggs from the coop (luckily my d'uccle ladies are still laying). They were due tomorrow, but today is my birthday and I guess some of the little ones wanted to say Happy Birthday [​IMG] LUCKY ME!

    Did you hatch in the Brinsea? I am going to have to move mine to the Hovabator as I have a staggered hatch going. The Brinsea recommends a separate hatcher.

    Yes, I hatched in the Brinsea and they are doing great. I did have to give Brinsea a call and ask because unfortunately my 2 year old thought the styrobator was a step stool.... [​IMG]

    Just takes a little extra cleaning so I'm not too upset [​IMG]
