    Got my incubator all hooked up all calculated to room temperature has been for the past week or so. I have my incubator temperature set to 99.5-101. Is there any advice anyone can give me about this huge project. We have been waiting a long time for this and am super excited. Thank you.

    Congratulations and [​IMG]

    Hatching eggs can be really fun. What type of incubator do you have, and are you getting shipped eggs (through the mail) or local?

    Wishing you the best of luck!

    I'm getting them local from here in VA. I have a Little Giant incubator with the automatic egg turner.

    Is your LG a still air or does it have a fan? If still air, you want it to run a tiny bit hotter, more like 101.5 measured at the top of the eggs.

    Make sure they are pointy end down (but you probably knew that!)
