    I have my LG going now to with 50 quail eggs. [​IMG] Then last night started up the Brinsea because Im getting a bunch of Blue Orp eggs this week. Exciting isnt it? I dont think you can ever stop at just one incubator. I keep making excuses to get more. Us hatch-o-holics are just hopeless lol.
     
  7. Yaay Crystal! You're gonna need that 3rd bator for sure!
    [​IMG] I'm sure I can fit 4 doz in a #7 box, hahahahaha!!!

    I have a biig hatch just starting --- 15 or so bantams (mott Japs, mott Cochins, and my first Seramas), and another hatcher with 30 or so Ameraucana (I lost several when the stupid turner stopped stupid turning and stupid I didn't catch it in stupid time).

    I'm just going to write LISA'S on my third bator, cuz that's ALL I'm going to get in there!! But, by then end of the month my first bator will be empty! On top of your 4 dozen, I'm getting about 9 dozen more by the end of Feb...That's a LOT!! I'm going on a 40-50% hatch rate, b/c they're all shipped! We'll see!!
