Hiya everyone,
My speckledy hen is sat on 6 silver birchen pekin eggs and she's been doing a fabulous job. Day 18 will be on Thursday, and I'm just wondering if i need to do anything to her nest to control humidity or if it'll all be sorted itself. Her nest is sawdust and straw, and she's in a nest box that's above floor level.

My Japanese Bantam hen Anna, Just went broody right when I get rid of her "husband". I have her on 13 Coturnix Quail eggs due to hatch on June 9th!!! I also just hatched 7 ducklings, I'm getting more eggs tomorrow and will get some through the mail from florida very soon!!! Also have some D'uccles, Jap. Bantam and Favorelles incubating. I'm hooked to hatching!!! I only have 2 incubators and got them in March. So far I"ve hatched out over 50 chicks!!!
