    I have two small hatchers going with some eggs from all of my breeds. They were set exactly 3 weeks ago at night and the hatch has begun right on time. I love it when it works like that! [​IMG]

    One of my pullet Orpie babies...she seems to think the early bird gets the worm, but didn't realize how lonely that could be..

    Thanks! The one pictured in the one hatcher is a Taylor digital that we found at a hardware store. It has been my all time favorite.

    My other hatcher has an Accurite digital, which also works well and provides accurate readings for us.

    I think I'm gonna have chicks coming out of my ears soon. lol The sportsman is full and just plugged in the Brinsea OvaEasy to get more going. [​IMG] Good thing they aren't here long or I'd fall in love with all of the cute little fuzzy butts.

    An Amelia baby just hatched and another silkie baby! [​IMG]

    Congrats, Jody! I have a Taylor indoor/outdoor with probe in the weasel because you recommended them way back when and it's very accurate. I just saw that weather station one you have tonight on Amazon.com and liked it alot. Can't wait till your eggs get here this week!
