    Im slowly getting closer to doing my own hatching. A guy at work just gave me a new (never used) LG with auto turners and a fan setup so it isn't a still air. Can't be a free price. Anyway my question is...is a hatchery an incubator that's set more orless for lockdown till hatching... so when it comes time to lockdown you just set the eggs in the hatchery and continue on? Thanks for your info.

    Its called a hatcher & yes thats all its used for, that way you wont have a mess in your bator & you can keep adding eggs to the bator at different times, its very helpfull.
