I've got 14 Bielefelder eggs in my incubator now. I have hatched once before, about 10 or 12 years ago. Out of 14 mailed Black New Jersey giant eggs I hatched 13, one chick died. The incubator I used cost me about $25.00 at our co-op. The electricity even went off for about 4 hours. Talk about first time luck. I hope I do half as well this time. Really enjoy this site. So informative. I'll let you know how my Bielefelder hatch goes.
