    Thanks a lot, that sounds like a pretty good deal, 20 eggs in the Octagon 20 Advance. But I wonder if I will need more than one, or perhaps a larger incubator. :-\

    I've got a Rouen and two East Indies. But I have a straight run of 10 Khaki Campbells coming in a couple days and wonder what my male/female ratio will be and if I will eventually need another or a bigger one. :-\

    They hold 24 easily even using the egg carton method. More if you position statically .

    Whats the egg carton method?

    I was actually hoping for broody duck breed, but alas I decided to go with quantity and not quality (of mother). :-(

    I bought a Brinsea oct 20. Have not tried it yet though, but I have heard lots of good reviews.

    Where did you get your campbells from? Mine came from Cackle I was just wondering.
