    I ordered 20 top hat eggs from mcmurray they sent me 24 2 were broken and then another 2 cracked in the incubator but I got them out before they leaked all over the place. I also set 4 of our eggs. They mcmurray eggs are are 6 days old and my eggs are a week old. I candled the mcmurray eggs yesterday and over half of them are fertile! My eggs are dark brown so it's still hard to tell. I just can't wait till they hatch!

    Quote:Wow 40 eggs, good luck with yours too! I am using a hova bator turbo-fan incubator with automatic turner. It's only the 5th time I've used it but after every hatch I clean it and sterilize it. Only 2 weeks left but it seems like 2 years... Good Luck with your hatch keep us updated!
