    I set some to hatch the 4th..the others are muscovy ducks so that will be quite a bit longer. Hoping I get chickies as this is my first time :)

    I'll join. I put 20 Delawares and 4 Organic Free Range brown store bought eggs in incubator today for a March 3rd hatch. I have been gathering my Delaware eggs and only got 20 by today so added the other 4 to finish filling the incubator. Not holding out much hope for them but it felt better then leaving 4 spots empty.

    I set 18 barnyard mix eggs yesterday in my homemade incubator. The eggs came from a fellow byc member. This is my first hatch.

    I set 12 White Leghorn and 12 RIR due to hatch March 4th as well. This is my second time hatching. This time around, I made the incubator out of a 10 gallon fish aquarium so that I could see all the action better during hatching. When does everyone candle the first time? Good luck to all!

    Day 7 seems like so far away. The first time I hatched eggs, I remember having the urge to candle every time I turned the eggs.

    Sunny - What did you make your incubator out of? It appears to be an aquarium or something similar. Have you had good luck hatching in it in the past?

    I am very worried at the moment. I have a woodstove that heats the house and during the night it went out. It ended up getting really cold in the morning and when I looked at the incubator at 4:00 AM the tempature was only 90! I freaked out and turned up my dimmer switch. Today I am going to add foam insulation on the sides of the bator to help hold the heat in. [​IMG]This is my first hatch.
