    I won an auction on ebay for a Brinsea Octagon 20DX. Now I need some eggs! Anybody have any available? I am really interested in the oddball stuff. I love Showgirls, Polish, and Frizzles.

    Congratulations!!! I was looking at a novabator on there, but got stuck with another LG 9200 series for a spur of the moment hatch. One of our girls laid a double yolker (twins), so we are putting it with a couple others for grins and giggles in to see what happens. Hatch rate on twins is low, but we're trying it out anyway... just for the heck of it. And probably will every time we come across any more. You never know when one will work out. [​IMG]

    Quote:Yeah, I so would too. I think it'd be neat to have twins hatch. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. I was planning on ordering straight from Brinsea, but saw that one on there and figured what the heck. Saved me a bundle...that I'll end up spending on eggs to put in there I'm sure. =P

    Quote:LOL. I'm EmtheEverything lady. We have 2 cats, 2 dogs, 7 chickens, the fish...and amazingly, that's it right now. Of course I'm not counting the various rescues we have coming in and out constantly. Right now we have a chinese crested someone dropped off. Planning on putting this incubator to work though! After I run the hatch of chickens, I'll probably go to peacocks, then ducks, then we're going to try an emu chick for a friend of mine...[​IMG] My husband is thrilled.[​IMG]
