    Ordered game fowl eggs off the internet and have never incubated eggs before. Have done a little research but any advice would be helpful

    rather than posting in the new member section, I would suggest you put it in the incubating eggs section, people there are more likely to be of help.

    Hi :welcome @lilgt722

    Glad you could join us here! I'm sure you will enjoy incubating and hatching, it's lots of fun and very rewarding too. Nothing beats watching the chick hatch from the egg. It sure is a miracle!! It's also very addicting, I'm not happy unless the incubator is on.

    Have a read of this article ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-101 It's a bible and my go to for any queries I have.

    The incubating section also has some really helpful members, here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/5/incubating-amp-hatching-eggs

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow
