Well i got my new Genesis in the mail today...EXCITED!!! I bough it specifically for some VERY expensive egg's i plan to get in the next few weeks. My question is, should i set everything up and test it? Over the past 6 weeks i have set aside a large clutch of white bearded silkie eggs from my pullet, also, a millie fleur d'uccle pullet that started laying recently. Now my rooster had access to both girls , but they were in confined spaces. The eggs i have now have sat outside in my garage the entire time since layed and it's been getting in the 30's here at night. Over my last 2 hatches, i noticed my rooster really likes to breed when he's free range'ing, and hardly breeds at all when i have him locked up with the girls. So that means there is still a big chance he could of not got to them like usual in lock-up, but the other thing is all the egg's i have sat aside range from 6 weeks old to about 1 week old at the best. So, should i throw them in tomorrow after i run the bator for 24 hours? Or just run the bator to test the thermostat? I figured if i had vains in a week i could stagger my "hopefull" expensive eggs alongside my old "garage banty" eggs. I figured it would be better to find out my thermostat may need to be adjusted with my personal eggs rather than finding out with eggs i payed ALOT for. I am expecting a 5% chance of having just one fertile egg of the 30+ or so i have, but i figured "hey, let's give'em a shot..why the heck not?" What do you guy's think??
