    Being a Newbie I have had zero conception rate on my eggs in my bator and finally I had some hatch which it is still low but I got 8 babies and this little baby was my very first one that suprised me! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks! I really lost count on how many eggs I did set.. (ALOT LOL) I'd had no luck with the 2 batches I sat before and on this batch just sat them on the turner and forgot about them.

    I'm about to set some in a home made bator.... It's hard not to have high hopes for it, it runs perfect temp/rh. I've simulated lockdown and had no problem with raising rh. I hope it works. I want at least one fuzzybutt pic.
    Congratulations on yours!

    LOL... I mean I want some pics of fuzzybutts from my bator which has not seen an egg yet. I'm excited for you to get some hatched, and can't wait till I'm in your shoes.
