So I got my new Genisis Hovabator in late January, then I bought a little giant egg turner from my local Rural King Store. Next I hit up a friend for some Seabright eggs to hatch, He gave me 48. I put them in the brand new bator on February 3 at about 9:00 pm. Kept the water tray full. After about a week I candle them all but two were fertile. On Saturday night 2/20/2010 I removed the egg turner. Monday night 2/22/2010 The first eggs hatched, by morning another three, Tuesday after I got home from work 30 were hatched and by Wensday morning 39. I lost two baby chicks while they where trying to hatch and 5 eggs never pipped. I am still very surprised at how well the bator did. I had hatched eggs out several years ago but had a lot of trouble only about a 30% hatch rate. This was a great experience I can't wait to hit up some friends for some eggs of some other breeds I want. Will add pics Soon. Oh and by the way does anyone have areason for the early hatch?
