    Just set eggs last night and wondering if anyone want to be my hatching buddy! This is my first time hatching and I order the eggs in the mail so I am a little nervous and a lot excited! I set 8 swedish flower hens, 4 silver Sussex and 4 lavender orps.

    I was able to borrow a Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance from a friend. It has humid control and everything. She said it was fool proof. We will see. My eggs got lost in the mail for two days taking a total of three days to get here. I hope that they are still ok. Thank you all for joining me.

    I'm in too. I set 12 golden lakenvelders on the 8th. I had them shipped in. I'll be hatching in a home made bator too.
