Hi everyone, I am going to ask for a favor! I am getting eggs shipped to me on Wednesday from California. When they arrive, I need to know WHAT TO DO NEXT!!! If anyone, or several of you would like to compile a simple step by step list of what I need to know about incubating eggs, I'd truly appreciate it. Or, if you can guide me to a thread that has already discussed this in detail for a newbie, that would be fine also. I will be gone all day Tuesday, but will check back here on Wednesday to see all of the wisdom that has been left here for me!!!! Thanks so very much in advance! I have so enjoyed this board, really, more than any other board I've been a member of! Kristy PS, I need basic info...how do I disinfect my borrowed incubator? Which way do I lay the eggs in it? What do they rest on? Do I need a humidity gauge of some sort? There are several thermometers in the bator, do I need all 4 of them? By day 18, I don't touch them anymore, right? And I DON"T OPEN the bator after day 18? And something happens on day 5? I know I mark them with a pencil only, or at least that is what I have read....just stuff like this, what to do, the basics., etc!!! Thanks!
