    Well I'm finally recovering from my first attempt at incubating eggs.
    Here's how things tallied up:
    15 welsummer eggs sent- 2 broke in transit, tossed an oozer, 3 chicks died in the egg, 4 early quitters or nonfertile(couldn't candle), and 5 new baby Welusmmers! One has some issues, but seems to be getting stronger.

    8 silkie eggs sent - 1 broke in transit, 1 infertile, 1 chick died in egg, 1 quitter, and 4 new baby buff silkies! Sooo cute!

    I was using a new Genesis 1588 with turner and digital therm/hyrom. Was hoping for a better hatch rate, but I'm happy with 9 new fuzzbutts! [​IMG]
