    I got the bator running smoothly at 99-100F and at 40ish humidity. So right before midnight i put a dozen itty bitty eggs in the bator. [​IMG] hope the hatching and pullet gods are in a good mood. THe last thing i need are roos only. I guess they should hatch on the 27th. Two days after my birthday. [​IMG] Now i really have to get started on the chicken tractor.

    Two day after your Birthday, you should have put them in two days ago. What a great gift that would have been. Good luck with them. [​IMG]

    They were put in the mail two days ago though if that helps.I it when they hatch on fridays so the kids cant stay up late if they want and check on the hatch progress.

    My eggs made it the first night. I was sitting well actually sleeping on coals. My last accurite was a chronic when i came to wrong readings. So i had a calibrated outside thermometer in there and another Accurite that i bought last night at Wallyworld. I feel positive this time , they werent marked as eggs and packaged extremly well. I candeled them for cracks too and there werent any, i thought there was a loose aircell though.
