    WEll I got both batches of shipped eggs I ordered this morning. After letting them settle all day, I got home around 9 pm and but them in the bator. I have 21 eggs all together. 7 silkie batams and 14 mixed batams (shipper was nice enough to send 2 extras). Wish me luck everyone!!!<fingers crossed>

    Hey gocrow77!! I wish you all the luck inthe world. Put mine in last night and this morning so far it is holding 99-100 degree temps and 35-45% humidity. So far so good.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Shipped eggs are always a gamble, my last batch was badly handled and didn't go (one broken, other's with obvious air cell damage). So here's hoping the PO was kind and all goes well. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well we are at the beginning of day 3 and luckily the bator is holding between 99 and 100 and humidity is 30%-35%. Humidity seems to go up as the day goes on, but not extremly high. still have my fingers crossed. As I said before "SO FAR SO GOOD!"[​IMG]

    This is my first time too, I have 15 shipped silkies. I didn't order a turner with my incubator but after turning them a couple of times I have one on the way. I think I will feel better about them being turned constantly. Well good luck!
