    My neighbor loaned me his old styrofoam incubator (hovabator with a wafer thermostat) and an egg turner. He has also loaned me a little giant to use as my hatcher. Last night he told me that if I wanted the one with turner, I could have the incubator and the turner for $20!! The turner is in great condition and the styrofoam has a few stains but no cracks or holes. He also has a large cabinet incubator he is thinking about selling. Imagine what I could hatch in that!!!

    Right now I have 12 eggs in. 11 are developing. One is questionable. I plan on candling again tomorrow night so I can toss out any bad ones. Today is day 13. Another 12 eggs are enroute to me. They should be here today. This is so exciting!! [​IMG]

    Let me be the first to welcome you to the insanity of hatching. [​IMG] It's awesome!! Good luck with your current hatch. Next week you will have little ones running around.
    Opps! Looks like I was slower in typing - 2nd person now.
