    The trip back to LA was uneventful. I managed to sleep for about 6 hours on the plane.

    My shower greeted me with warm massaging fingers.

    Here are just a few pics of the trip.

    The cowboy outfits are adorable!!! I bet they will want to be sleeping in the boots. The egg shots are wonderful...what potential they represent. May everything come to fruition![​IMG]

    Do you incubate the eggs double stacked?

    yes but we have excellent air circulation pulling the air across the incubator at 4 levels as well as drawing to from top to bottom,

    we have double stacked local eggs experimentally with 80% hatch.

    the "breeze" system seems to increase fluid loss in eggs and may helped with hatches.

    Mine are double stacked on trays that allow airflow. Should not be an issue.
