    Have 48 eggs that started in a homemade cabinet incubator for 8 days and the fan went out ,,, it got hot ,,, moved them to a very old GQF cabinet for 4 days ,, was able to get a couple of GQF 1266's and 1250 hatchers ,, so I moved them again at day 19 noved them again to the hatcher ,, had resigned myself that if 5 or more hatches i would be lucky ,,, but 23 hatched and there is still a chance for 2 or 3 more ,, all well developed and active in the brooder now ,,, never was able to get the hatcher higher than 55 % humid tho , got to work on that have 55 more going in tomorrow . most of them are buff orphington ( bought eggs ) but not shipped .

    Not a bad hatch even with the fan not working and over heating...
