Okay, I havent done this in YEARS, but thanks to all of your exiting stories and cute little pics, I plugged in my incubator last night. Only problem with that is I cant really remember what temp it needs to be...Im thinking befor it stayed between 99 and 101. I dont really have a good incubator, just the little styrofoam one. Any way, I have some eggs that my chicken and duck laid, but some of the chicken eggs are about 2 weeks old, and they are dark brown so I really cant see inside of them. Also my mother in law gave me some goose eggs...which I have never tried to incubate befor, some are rotten but a couple are good. Can they go in with the duck eggs? Do they take 28 days? Okay last question (for now), I am going to keep the chicks that hatch inside, I have always had bad luck with them after they hatch, not sure what I do wrong, I put them in a rubbermaid container, line it in newspaper and sprinkle chick starter. I use the waterer that attaches to a quart jar, change the paper and water daily. I suspend a 60 watt lightbulb over the box. But I always lose at least half if not all of my chicks, the duck do pretty good though. Any suggestions?
