    Congrats on the acquisition!

    Be careful, those things cause chicken math to change from addition to multiplication.

    Good luck with the hatching!!

    My last hatch in the Hovabator 1588 with the egg turner - 9 chicks from 13 eggs that were shipped! [​IMG] I have 26 in it right now, hope I have a similar hatch rate [​IMG]

    Good luck with all your hatches i am testing mine now with no eggs just seeing how the heat and humidity do! i have 7 eggs that Rosie layed my black silkie! I do have a question ok so i want the humidity at 30-40 for the first 18 day then you want it to go up to about 70 the last few days does that sound about right
