    Will they be shipped eggs or some from a local farm? Either way your going to want at least double the amount of what your wanting to hatch if this is your first time hatching eggs. Shipped eggs are harder to hatch so you will want more to work with. It took me 3 tries before I was able to hatch anything out of my incubator. And when I finally did I got about half maybe a little less.
