    Hi there! [​IMG] I'm new to hatching, this is my first hatch...and to top it off I have shipped eggs! Ha yeah I'm a newbie [​IMG] I have a hova-bator 1583, auto turner with three thermometers and two hygrometers. My temp has been very good so far (i think) between 99 to 100 my humidity has been between 45% and 47% [​IMG]

    I'm looking for hatching buddies, come share with me!

    Guess all I can do right now is wait and not mess with it to much [​IMG]

    I'll join you! I have 25 Ameraucana - probably Easter Eggers - in two incubators at this time. I am very excited and hopeful as my last batch of 7 didn't have any survivors. CHECK YOUR HUMIDITY, EVEN IF YOUR GAUGE TELLS YOU THAT YOUR LEVEL IS GOOD!!!

    Here's to June 3rd....Hatch Day! [​IMG]

    Oh yeah another person! [​IMG]

    Both of my hygrometers say 45% currently I get a slight spike right after adding more water though. But nothing higher than 47% yet. Does it need to be higher or lower?

    Best of luck with your next hatch! What went wrong with your last one? I'm sorry for your loss [​IMG]

    This is my first broody and my first hatch ever, so I'm quite the newbie on it. However, she is sitting on 11 barred rock/easter egger crosses and 1 black tailed white bantam. I will get a picture of the she-devil sitting on her clutch [​IMG]

    What type of eggs do you have set?

    I have lemon blue Cochin, BCM, columbian wyandottes and barnevelders in the bator.
