So, hope to get some good advice. I've raised chickens for 3 years, and have always wanted to hatch some. I started by buying from a feed store, graduated to ordering from a hatchery, and now I'm graduating to hatching my own. Bought a brand new GQF 1588, with the turner and digital thermometer, and found a guy who can keep roosters, who wants to try to hatch out some of his eggs. He was going to bring me a couple of dozen on Friday, but when I called on Thursday, he said that they get a few every day and are "keeping them on the counter with a warm light on them. My son turns them once in awhile." Wasn't sure that that would work out So I told him to start collecting them again, and just put them in a carton on the counter. No heat. I should have some eggs this Friday. Hope that way will work out better. I wasn't sure to tell him to put them in the fridge or not. Any other advice? Anyone else setting this weekend?
