    New problem. I put it in the egg turner, and when it's turned the farthest to the side, water is spilling out of the vent holes in the corners, and I have a lake on my counter. What the heck? Are my wells to full? Well, obviously. How full should they be?

    And here's a random pic of my BCM roo, just because he's gorgeous, and I love him. Even though he doesn't love me. Ignore the speckles on his back, he jumped under the scratch when I scattered a little.

    I'm thinking the instructions say no more than two-thirds full. Or maybe there's a fill line?

    And your roo is gorgeous.

    ok so I was wondering if anyone could answer my question.. So I have a steal her incubator and I was wondering if I went and bought a little handheld battery operated fan and put it I in it if it would work the same as a circulated air incubator

    8 silkies and 2 cross breeds... Dad is an Ameraucana/Cochin and 1 mom is a Black australorp and the other mom is probably a production Rhode Island Red... would that make the 2 chicks Easter eggers? These two ladies are my best layers... That's one good thing about hatching eggs in the winter, you're most likely hatching your best layers' eggs...

    Probably if installed correctly, I wouldn't try to add one mid incubation unless you're super sure about what you're doing. I would add it for the next hatch.
