    I just put my dozen light brama eggs into lockdown for the first time. This is all new to me but I'm hooked already! Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I've been doing this for several yrs and hatches are always exciting. Its best to "go do something" for 2 days or you will wear yourself out checking the incubator.

    I just finished my first hatch of Columbian Rocks and they were LATE....by about 1/2 day.....talk about sitting on your hands!!!

    Good luck
