    I am a new member, however have searched the site many times for valuable info and advice! I have a rainbow flock of 50 or so standard hens and a Partridge Rock Roo. I have set eggs in the incubator twice this year and hatched 10/12 fertile eggs and 16/18 fertile eggs in my Rcom20 incubator. Will set 18 more on March 9. The last 2 batches we sold/given to my cousin. Love chickens!

    Greetings from Kansas, TNT, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! I'm a hatching rookie myself but it seems that 1 roo for 50 hens might be insufficient if you wanted to make sure the eggs you are attempting to hatch are fertile....again, I'm a hatching newbie and could be way off base. Good luck to you and have fun with your birds!! Have fun!!

    Yes, I agree that 1 Roo may not be enough, but my second Roo died of Mareks I believe. I got rid of all the others. This guy has managed to stay nice enough to stay around. I have little kids and naughty Roos don't stay long. I am getting 5 straight run blue laced red Wyanadottes and hope for a nice Roo there for next year. My first batch of eggs I had 12/18 fertile, second batch 18/18 fertile. Not sure if that was just luck.
