I'll start. I began hatching eggs in the summer of 1976.... ...at age 11. Anybody here even born (hatched?) that long ago? I used a GQF incubator the size of a huge grapefruit...one of those you see in the ad for Boys Life magazines. I tried hatching muscovy duck eggs--could only fit 3 in there--...waited for 35 days with a zero percent hatch. Undeterred, I got bantam eggs and hatched two out of 5 eggs...it's a wonder that unreliable little plastic bator even hatched anything. Then in 1980 I got my Turn-X from Marsh in California, solid state thermo, for $80, plus auto egg turner. Saved up my money for 6 months to buy that. In 2007 (27 yrs later) I had my Turn-X overhauled completed and gutted and totally rebuilt. It works like a complete charm.
