Yesterday I placed 21 eggs in the incubator. All the eggs were shipped eggs plus waiting for 20+ more to show up. I really wanted to wait until I had received all the eggs in the mail but got antsy! After reading on here for a few weeks now I see that shipped eggs don't have a great hatch rate so at this point if 2 of them hatch I will be delighted. Never had chickens before and like my dh says "you always seem to pick the difficult route when doing something new.". Haha, he is correct but I love a challenge. I am using a Hova Bator. Currently trying to borrow a LG for the eggs that are coming in the mail sometime this wk! Any suggestions on what I can do if I can't borrow the LG other than going out and buying another incubator?
