    I won some polish bantam eggs and I will be getting them tommarow!
    I'm very excited!
    This will be my fist time hatching eggs so i hope all goes well.
    I have a Hovabator 1620 with an egg turner and a fan.
    I'm curious about how much water to put in the water tray?
    I know humidity should be around 30% until its day 18, then i raise it to about 60% humidty and the temp should be 95.5-100.
    Anymore advice for a hatching newbie?

    Sounds like you are doing well. Most important thing right now is the temp..don't let it get too high. I like to go 99.3 to 99.5..especially if you have a turner, eggs are closer to the heating element. Good luck, now, you've done it. Will want more!! [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone!
    I got my eggs! And they are in great condition and were packaged great!
    I had alot of fun unwrapping them :].
    I'm so excited and can't wait for them to hatch.
    Even if just one hatches, i'll be happy!
