Hi I've been following this thread for a while well actually I found it and read the entire thing lol. I'm a chickaholic and I was hoping to just get my fix and leave but now I want to fire up the Bator and start again. Let me tell you a little about myself I'm 25 female and I've only recently built my own incubator I hatched once but need to do it again. But I'm working all the bugs out with it. The hatch that I did was out of necessity I had a broody that quite as I just got it put together it was a message from god to fire up that incubator. Everything that could go wrong did. Power outages staggered hatch because I was a newbie and figure if a through a few extra that were laid that day in it wouldn't hurt. And a list of a hole lot of problems but I loved it I got the hole family involved everyone was coming over for candling nights and I had a full house come hatching day. All in all it was amazing process i ended up with a 74 percent hatch rate and I can't wait to do it again and this thread is making that itch worse. I will be following along.
