    The eggs from Donna will be here this afternoon, and I've been saving some nice ones from my own hens. I'm going to pop them in the bator Saturday morning, after recycling any of mine that are over 10 days old, and cross my fingers:D

    I have an LG with fan and turner which seems to be fairly stable. The humidity is really low, about 26%, so not sure if I should add water now or just wait a bit.
