I'm doing the same thing!!! Tomorrow, I'm going to set about 10 eggs or more!! My incubator holds about 48 eggs so I still have a ways to go! I hope all goes well for you!

I have got the itch too. I am in the process of making a homemade incubator out of an old fish tank. If all goes well my bator should be finished tomorrow and I will let it run as a test to see how well it holds the temp and humidity. Since I have 6 hens right now and I shouldn't really hatch anymore for myself, I think I am going to advertise my hatching services. I am definitaly not doing this for profit. I am only doing it to get rid of the itch.

Well, I meant that when and if those chicks hatch in my incubator... I have to sell them... not my laying hens...

I wish I could hatch
I would get killed though or at least seriously maimed if I tried brooding chicks in the house this year and its far too cold out this year to do it outside...a whopping 6 degrees today...
