    Could use all the help I can get, first time attempting to incubate eggs, seems exciting to me, but I don't want to lose the chicks from something I have done wrong. Got the incubator from TSC that has the turner for the eggs. I also have an additional thermometer to recheck the temp, any help is welcome, thanks.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! My best advice to you would be to read this article ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-101 It's a bible when it comes incubating and hatching. Lots of great information that will help you on your way. I'm sure you will enjoy it very much, watching the chicks hatch from the egg is an amazing experience.

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