    I only have one breeding pair and they recently began laying eggs, so I figured why not go ahead and incubate them. So, 12 went in to the Brinsea incubator yesterday. I figure I can collect and put a new batch in every week then, when it's time, take them out and put them in my hovabator to hatch.

    That's neat! They are laying very late in the season! I hatched mine in December/January...Maybe mine will lay! [​IMG] Kudos on the incubation!

    Forgot to subscribe to the thread when I posted [​IMG] I was suprised when I got eggs, wasn't expecting any until spring. However, they did just finish going through a molt about a month ago. They are very pretty and I enjoy them. I'm hoping the eggs hatch and I can have more. We shall see what happens. [​IMG]
